Book Club Kits

Woollahra Libraries offer a range of kits to allow you and your book club to engage in lively discussion over some great books. Book Club Kits are free to borrow but you must be a member of Woollahra Libraries.

Have a read of our latest list of book club kits.

What does the service offer?

Each kit comes in a box containing multiple copies of a particular book, and can be borrowed for three weeks with the option to renew once, subject to availability and reservations. Each kit also contains an author profile, and a list of suggested discussion questions & talking points. They can be collected from any of our three branches (Double Bay, Watsons Bay and Paddington.)

What is required from the book club?

  • Each kit must be booked at least one week in advance, subject to availability.
  • One member must borrow and take responsibility for all items in the kit.
  • The complete kit with all the copies must be returned in person to one of our libraries (not through an after-hours chute.)
  • Pay standard overdue fees if the kit is returned late.
  • Pay replacement fees for any items that are lost of damaged.
  • Distribute items and allow use by book club members only.
  • Let us know which library branch you'd like to collect the kit from at time of reservation.
  • A standard loan period of six weeks applies, with no renewals permitted.
  • A maximum of two kits can be on loan to each book club at any one time
