A book club, which is also known as a reading group, is a gathering of people who meet regularly, either in person or online, to read and talk about books. Within a discussion group, readers can focus their opinions, enhance their understanding and gather new perspectives.

Book Club Sets are offered as a service to book club groups.
The Popular Reading Library has selected titles in sets of 10 copies for an extended loan period of six weeks. A folder of reviews and a short author biography accompany each set. The books and folder are packaged in a canvas carrying bag.
Book Club Sets will be signed out to one VPL library card holder who will assume responsibility for returning the books to the library. The sets may be reserved through your local VPL branch and picked up there and can be returned to any VPL location. Renewals are not permitted. You may have two sets on your card at one time.
A printer-friendly list of all Book Club sets is also available.
