Book clubs are a great way to meet people who share your passion for reading. We have several groups that meet once a month from October to May for an enthusiastic discussion. Book clubs are offered at all locations and registration is required. Registration opens on Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

Read, Listen, Watch, Chat Book Club
Welcome to our first mixed-media club. It's basically the same as a book club, but we don't read books! Instead, we read articles and essays, listen to podcasts, and watch documentaries.

Gale Centre Walkers' Club
Join us before or after your walk at the Gale Centre, upper level of rink 1 once a month for a lively book discussion. Come to one, a few or all. Pick up your book for the first session at the Victoria Ave. Library - after that, the librarian will bring them to Gale the month before.

Book Club Kits
Does your book club have trouble finding enough copies of a book for all your members? A Niagara Falls Public Library Book Club Kit can make things easy!
A Book Club Kit contains 10-15 copies of a fiction or nonfiction book. There are more than 50 Book Club Kits available to borrow - a complete list of titles is available.
Book Club Kits can be borrowed with a valid Niagara Falls Public Library card in good standing. Reserves can be put on any of our titles.
The loan period is six weeks. Up to two kits at a time can be checked out on a library card.
Where can I pick up Book Club Kits?
Book Club Kits are available at the Victoria Avenue Library. Come browse the collection or put a reserve on a title and we’ll send the kit out to the Niagara Falls Public Library location that is most convenient for your pickup.
Where can I return Book Club Kits?
When you’re finished with the kit, please make sure all copies of the books are returned together in the bag provided with the kit. The kits can be returned to staff at any Niagara Falls Public Library location, but cannot be returned via our return boxes due to the size of the kit’s contents.
For more information, contact us at 905-356-8080, ext 0 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
