For Adults

Online Book Discussions & Book Clubs


01/11/2021

You are invited to join in one of our many online book discussions that take place several times each month. In our book discussion groups we read and talk about both fiction and non-fiction books. We express our opinions (both likes and dislikes!) with other avid readers in the city.

Discussions are currently held as an online meeting/webinar. You will be emailed login instructions approximately 24 hours before the event.

Do you know about #currentlyreading on IndyPL's Facebook page on Sunday nights? You can also join in with other readers on Facebook on Sunday nights when we host #currentlyreading. It is a great group to help find what to read next!

Would you rather DIY your book group? You lead the club, we'll provide the books! If you prefer to host your own book discussion or book club, check out an IndyPL Book Club In a Bag Kit. Choose from over 125 titles for your book club! Each kit contains 10 copies of the same title with a 6-week checkout period and book club guides with discussion questions! Learn more
