Book Clubs

Library based book clubs

Do you enjoy reading books and then discussing them with others? The Cockburn Libraries’ Book Clubs are a great opportunity to read new authors and engage in lively discussions and debates. They are also a great way to make new friends in a social environment.

  • Spearwood Library – Morning Book Club meet on the third Monday of the month at 10.00am and the cost is $5.00 per session, which includes book hire.
  • Spearwood Library – Evening Book Club meet on the third Thursday of the month at 6.30pm and the cost is $5.00 per session, which includes book hire.
  • Success Library –  Book Club meet on the third Thursday of the month at 5.30pm and the cost is $5.00 per session, which includes book hire.
  • Coolbellup Library – Last Friday Book Club meet on the last Friday of the month at 10.30am and the sessions are free.

Home based book clubs

Do you want to set up your own book club? Cockburn Libraries have several sets of 6 books that are available for Home Based Book Clubs to borrow. These sets are located at Spearwood Library. You can choose to pickup your set from Coolbellup Library or Success Library but it will normally take an extra day or two to be delivered there.

Click here to see the book sets…

The link above will allow you to see all of the sets of books that we have for loan and their availability. If the set you would like is onloan you can reserve it. You will receive notification once the set is ready to pick up.

The loan period is for 5 weeks from the date you pick up the set. Anyone from your Book Club can pick up the books but the person to whom the set is issued bears the responsibility for the all books in the set. The books in the set are numbered to help you keep track of them.

We’d love to get some feedback from your book club, so why not fill out a Rating & Review of the books your group has read. Visit our How to… page for more information on filling out a Rating & Review.

      Hi Karen,
      Thank you very much for the heads up.
      We have just been through a major upgrade of our system, which has upset some of our links.
      We are trying to track down all of the problem links, so your help is very appreciated.
      I have updated the link to the Book Club Sets above.
      Thanks again.
