Do you love reading? Do you love getting together with friends and discussing books? Well why not get together and start a Book Club!
If you and at least 5 friends would like to start a book club, simply complete the book club registration form. There's an annual registration fee of $400 which entitles your club to 12 kits per calendar year. Each book club kit contains 10 copies of the selected title and can be borrowed for 8 weeks. You'll also get special treatment with some of our events, such as One Book One Wagga and our trivia nights.
With more than two hundred book club tubs, chock-full of titles, for lovers of Contemporary Fiction, Thrillers, Biographies, Literary Fiction, Science Fiction, Classics, Romance, Crime, and many more, there's something for everyone!

Yes! Clubs are entitled to have 2 kits out at the same time, however, clubs are limited to 12 kits per year.
You must be a registered Book Club to borrow from the Book Club collection.

Kits come in a tub to protect the books during transportation. The average tub weighs between 5-7kgs and our heaviest tub is 10kgs.
Absolutely! Using our website or app you can reserve up to 4 Book Club kits at a time.
You will receive an SMS or email notification when your kit is ready to collect.
