Do you happen to be one of those people that when you are reading a good book you spend every waking second wanting to talk about that book? The trouble with this is, most of the people around you are not reading the same book, and they have no interest in hearing all your feelings about said book. That's where our NEW library book club comes in handy!
Due to COVID-19, we are not able to meet in person but that doesn't mean we can't have a book club! We are happy to announce that our virtual book club is now here! Our Library U Facebook group will be the home for the new Jacksonville Public Library book club. Joining our book club is the perfect way to keep reading, talk about what you're reading, and make friends with other readers. Also, you don't even have to leave your house to join! Here are some of the details about our book club to get you started.
Book Club Details:
Our weekly book club posts will offer discussion questions to ponder and links to related books, movies, music and local activities so you can Read, Watch, Listen, Talk and Explore the book’s themes. This week we are kicking off week one of our book club and our first book club read is The Bear by Andrew Krivak which you can use your trusty library card to check out. We are happy to report that you have all the options to check out said book -- hard cover, ebook or audiobook!
During week one we introduce you to the new book and start you off with a reading guide. The reading guide will provide details on which pages to read before the next week’s post. Then, each week we'll post a discussion topic around what we have read so far. You can share your thoughts on the book club page or just read what other book lovers have posted.
Week Two - Week Four
During weeks two through four, we'll continue reading with weekly discussion questions to ponder. We will also provide related links to activities and materials in our collection.
During week five we will hold our virtual book club. During this online event you will finally be able to discuss all the things about said book.
The Jacksonville Public Library book club is for everyone! You can move at you own pace and check-in when you have time. And if you can’t make it to the live discussion, no problem, you have already been a vital part of our club through the five weeks! Does the book club sound perfect for you? Join our book club on Library U, the Facebook group for adult library programs. Also, be sure to sign up for our book club emails to stay up to date on all the latest book club happenings.
