  • Online Book Club

The newest addition to our eResources, Online Book Club is a state wide program for WA public library members. Participation is free! It is similar to an in-person book club but is run online. Three books are available concurrently for a period of nine weeks, updated five times throughout the year.

 The book club will have a moderator who manages the forum where discussions occur online. The moderator will pose questions to the book club, share relevant articles and facilitate conversation about topics in the book. Members will be encouraged to post and share as well. This format allows for ongoing conversation and makes it easy for readers to connect with each other through the forum.
