Library Book Clubs

Monash Public Library Service proudly supports over 40 local book clubs, free of charge, by supplying sets of ten titles up to 12 times each year to each club. The library selects new titles each year to ensure that book clubs have fresh, popular and engaging titles to discuss each month.

If you are an individual looking to join an existing book club, there are currently no vacancies.  If any vacancies become available, we will seek expressions of interest from this page.

If you are an existing group of people seeking to borrow book club sets from us, please note that we are currently at capacity and we are unable to accept new applicants.

For other types of Book Clubs, refer to those sections for further information about their membership status.

For general enquiries, please contact

Thank you and happy reading!
