NLPL In-Library Book Club Programs

Note: Many library buildings are currently closed due to COVID-19, and in-person programming has been suspended. But check check out online resources in this guide to support your bookclub during this time. And join us again when our library building open. In the meantime, stay safe and happy reading.

Join us at the library for a book club! We have book clubs that meet in over 70 libraries across the province. We provide the books and questions, you provide the discussion!

Our book club programs include:

  • Children’s book clubs
  • Fiction book clubs
  • Non-Fiction book clubs
  • Inclusive book club (see below)
  • Teen book clubs
  • Retired persons book clubs

Programs are free but generally require registration. Contact your local library to see if there is a book club near you.

Online Book Clubs & Resources

Book clubs you can join online or sites which include information on how to start, run and manage a book club.

NLPL Inclusive Book Club

The Inclusive Book Club is a partnership between the Mount Pearl Public Library, CELA (Centre for Equitable Library Access), and the CNIB to make the book club experience accessible to all residents of Newfoundland & Labrador! Whether you are an adult facing barriers related to physical, visual, or learning abilities, time availability or geographic location, or are simply looking for a book club that is open to all, the Inclusive Book Club will find a way for you to participate. Those that want to participate but cannot make the physical meetings held in Mount Pearl can participate through discussion threads on our dedicated Facebook page (search Inclusive Book Club) or through our Facebook Live broadcast.

If you’d like to sign up for the Inclusive Book Club, contact the Mount Pearl Public Library at 368-3603.

CELA (Centre for Equitable Library Access) provides access to a collection of accessible library materials for people who have difficulty reading due to a visual, physical or learning disability. More information about CELA and other accessible collections at NLPL.
