Book Clubs at Bayside Libraries

Bayside Library is committed to providing multiple book discussion opportunities to our community. Book clubs introduce readers to books they might not otherwise read. Through reflection and discussion, book clubs give readers a deeper meaning to what they read. Most of all, book clubs bring people together to celebrate reading!

Bayside Library Service offers four types of Book Discussion opportunities.

Online Book Clubs

BorrowBox Popular Titles allow simultaneous access to the same eBook title, so all your book club members can read the same book at the same time.

Also look out for the Overdrive Big Read Campaign which features one book club title, in eBook format, every quarter available with unlimited checkouts. The highlighted book will feature a discussion guide.
