Book Clubbers ahoy.

Wairarapa Library Service has riddden to the rescue with its new offering: “Book Club in a Bag.”

“Feed your fiction addiction with our new book club sets,” is the tag line to keeping all club members on the same page.

“Each Book Club in a Bag contains 10 copies of a book and an information sheet, including questions to get your group discussion started,” once everyone has actually read the relevant piece of literature. 

“If you run a book club, and you’re wondering what your group should read next, check out our carefully curated – and convenient – book club sets,” WLS said in a media statement.

The sets reportedly feature some of the best contemporary writing from around the world. “From prize-winners to exciting new voices, there really is something for everyone,” WLS notes.

To reserve one of these bags, or sets of 10, navigate to wls.org.nz 

Then, to search the catalogue type “book club set” in the Search bar, click on “Try this search in the Local Catalogue” to bring up the available book club sets.

“So that members of your book club have time to read the book, our book club sets are issued for six weeks,” it said.
