NDN Book Club:
Join us once a month as we explore some of the titles and authors @ Brodie in our Indigenous Knowledge Centre’s collection. We will be reading together and discussing the content as a group after each chapter. Group meets monthly. For more info or to join, please contact us at 345-8275 ext. 7252.
Each bag contains ten copies of one title, discussion questions, author information,
and reviews, for use by book clubs.
TBPL has over 250 books to choose from, so there is sure to be something for every club!
You can find all our Book Club in a Bag options in our online catalogue where you can place your selection on hold with your library card number and PIN. When placing your hold, choose which of our four TBPL branches you'd like to pick up your bag from. The bag can also be returned to any TBPL branch - just be sure that all ten books are coming back! Book Club in a Bag selections have a loan period of 8 weeks and holds are on a first come, first served basis. Charges will be given for any lost or damaged items, and bags cannot be renewed.
For assistance, please call the Mary J.L. Black Community Hub at 345-8275 ext. 7300 or email email@example.com

Calling all Book Clubs!
Do you belong to a book club? If so, your library wants to hear from you! We maintain a directory of local book clubs which is used to keep you informed of future author visits and new library services that may be of interest to your group.
Call the Mary J.L. Black Community Hub at 345-8275 ext. 7300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Need some ideas for new book club books?
Check out these website for some great ideas:
- Amnesty International Book Club
- Do you enjoy reading but find that you just don’t have the time?
- Are you running out of authors to read and want to discover some new ones?
- Do you ever dream of being able to sample your books before you commit to borrowing or purchasing them?
If you have responded YES to any of these questions, then you'll want to check out Dear Reader, our online book club. Here's how it works: each day, Monday through Friday, the subscribers are emailed a portion of a book that takes about 5 minutes to read. By the end of the week, subscribers have read two to three chapters from the same book. If they like it, they can check it out of the library or fill out a suggestion card if you think the library should have a copy. New books are featured every week. There is no charge for this service!
There are 11 book clubs to choose from. Something for every age and taste:
- Science Fiction
- Good News
- Audio books (that you can listen to in your email)
- and a special sneak preview Pre Pub Club that lets you start reading books that aren’t even published yet.
