Overview

Library Book Clubs

Monash Public Library Service proudly supports 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.

All general Book Clubs are currently full. We will advise on this page when places become available. 

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

For general enquiries, please contact Christina on christina.maguire@monash.vic.gov.au and remember to include your preferred phone number.

Thank you and happy reading!
