Book Clubs & Book Club Services

The library is committed to providing book discussion opportunities to the public.  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!

The library supports book discussion opportunities in two ways:

  • Providing resources and space for community clubs
  • Providing librarian led book clubs

BOOK CLUB RESOURCES

Payne County book clubs are invited to register as a club with our library.  By registering, your club will be eligible to check out our book club kits.  Learn more about our book club kit loan process.

We also offer Room 138 to book clubs that would like to meet in the library.  To reserve the room, please contact the Meeting Room Coordinator at 405-372-3633 x 8103.

LIBRARIAN LED BOOK CLUBS

The library currently hosts four clubs.  Each club is limited to 10 people to give everyone a chance to participate in the discussion and because the kits we use have only ten copies each.  Each of the clubs reads books off the library's book club kit list which includes both fiction and non-fiction. 

Join the Waiting List

Periodically, we have openings in one of the clubs.  To get on the book club wait list, please email AskaLibrarian and specify which days and times you are able to meet.

We've started a (virtual) teen book club again! We meet on the 2nd Thursday of every month and alternate monthly between members all reading the same book to discuss at the meeting and just meeting to discuss anything book-related that's on our minds (possibly with some prompt questions like What's the best villain in a YA novel? or What book would you never recommend to someone?) Click here to register.
