Registration is required for our bookclubs. At this time, there are two groups running. If we have sufficient interest, we may add a third meeting time.

Third Wednesday of the month at 2:00 pm (FULL, email sjames@pentictonlibrary.ca to be added to the waitlist)

Third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm (FULL, email sjames@pentictonlibrary.ca to be added to the waitlist)

The two clubs will be reading the same books, so patrons may only sign-up for one group. If you are interested in getting on the waitlist for one of the bookclubs, please email Stephanie at: sjames@pentictonlibrary.ca

FAQ's for the Book Club

When does the Book Club run?

Our regularly scheduled book club runs from September to June (with no meeting in December). 

What sort of books are read?

The books vary widely in topic. There are fiction and non-fiction titles, and every year the members of the current book club get to vote on what they would like to read the following year.

Is the Book Club online or in person?

We are meeting in person again.

Are the books available as e-books through the library?

Some of the titles are available online, some are not.

Why is there a limit to the number of people in the club?

We can only guarantee books to a certain number of people, and we cannot share them as easily, therefore we have to limit the participants. 

Are you going to be opening up another club?

If there is sufficient interest, we may run another meeting date at a later time.
