The Pride Pages evening book club focuses on LGBTQ2+ books and requires registration (stephaniejames@summer.com or 250-770-7786) 

Can I join more than one club? You are welcome to join the evening book club, and one of the afternoon book clubs. You are welcome to register for Pride Pages, but space is limited for this club.  

Where do I get the book? Come to the circulation desk, and see if there is a copy OR pick a copy up when the book club meets.

I want to run my own book club

That is great! We have book club sets that you can borrow. The titles available can be found here: Book Club Sets 

Anyone with a Penticton Public Library card can check out a Book Club Kit for their book club.  The person who checks out the kit assumes responsibility for returning the complete kit (bag and all copies) to the library by the due date.
