Online book club

Library members can join the free WA Public Libraries Online Book Club. It is similar to an in-person book club but is run online.

Three books are available concurrently for a period of nine weeks, updated five times throughout the year.

Members can vote for the next titles to be read, and take part in online discussions about the chosen title.
