Book clubs worth thought

Euroa Gazette - - FIRE ACTION WEEK -

EUROA and district prob­a­bly has one of the high­est con­cen­tra­tions of book clubs in the na­tion.

At one stage a rough count in­di­cated that there were at least fif­teen or more in op­er­a­tion.

Some were or­gan­ised by groups of friends, meet­ing to­gether over cof­fee and oth­ers were of­fi­cial groups run by the CAE.

Many groups meet at mem­bers’ homes, although quite a few meet in cafes, halls or the Lo­cal Li­brary.

Goul­burn Val­ley Li­braries have been of­fer­ing book clubs for some years now and have a wide va­ri­ety of books to choose from.

Last week, con­venor Jan Sut­ton or­gan­ised an in­for­ma­tion day to dis­play some of the lat­est books on of­fer for 2019.

Mem­bers of this year’s Book Clubs avidly pe­rused the ti­tles, which in­cluded some won­der­ful new books.

Jan was able to give those at­tend­ing in­for­ma­tion on each book, dis­play­ing an im­pres­sive knowl­edge of the large col­lec­tion on dis­play.

Jan sug­gested that if there mem­bers of the com­mu­nity in­ter­ested in join­ing a book club they should drop into the Euroa or Vi­o­let Town Li­brary for in­for­ma­tion or give her a call, (1300 374 765) or talk to a mem­ber of a book club.
