The library provides kits to book clubs with a Wyndham City Libraries Book Club membership. Book clubs generally have eight members and are free to join. Each club is self-run and has a Coordinator (nominated by the club) who organises borrowing and returns.
Join one of the library’s online book programs
If you aren’t part of an existing book club, you might want to take part in an online program.
Virtual Book Club
Join our Virtual Book Club!
Each month we meet online to chat about a selected title (just like a traditional book club). Each title is announced in advance, giving you plenty of time to read it. All books chosen for Virtual Book Club are available for multiple people to borrow at the same time - which means that you can download and read them anytime.
3rd Thursday of the month, 7.30pm -8.30pm
Follow #WyndhamReads on Facebook and Instagram to find out what Wyndham library staff and community members are reading. Post your own reviews and recommendations online, using the hashtag.

Book club kits
The library has a collection of over 100 book club kits that are available to clubs with a Wyndham City Libraries Book Club membership. Each kit contains eight copies of the same book, along with a folder that includes reviews and discussion questions. To borrow a book club kit please place a request via the library catalogue or by calling your local branch.
Find some suggested conversation prompts to get discussion started.
- Publisher websites – if you look up the title you are reading, sometimes the publisher’s website will include discussion notes, and author biographies
- LitLovers.com – this website has over 3,500 sets of book club questions, as well as generic questions to choose from
- Search for the title and book club questions/discussion in your favourite search engine. E.g. A Tale of Two Cities Charles Dickens book club questions
