We have book club sets that contain up to 15 copies of a title as well as an accompanying reading guide to use during your group discussion. The entire set can be checked out to the group’s coordinator, or single books can be checked out to each club member. You can reserve your copy online, or call us at 604-527-4660 to reserve multiple copies. All book club items are available for a 6 week loan period.

Online Book Club for Kids

Kids aged 9-12 are invited to join the Online Young Readers Book Club. Once a month after school we meet virtually through Zoom to discuss a great book and have fun conversations. Each participant receives a free copy of the book to keep! This program generally runs from September to May.
