WPL Book Clubs

If you enjoy reading and like discussing books, you may want to join one (or both!) of our book clubs.

The WPL Book Clubs have “open” memberships which allow for people to drop in and attend once in a while, or to come faithfully every month.

For more information, visit Book Clubs or contact Christine at cbrown@wpl.ca or 519-886-1310 ext. 146.

WPL is proud to be a part of One Book, One Community (OBOC). Each spring, OBOC encourages people in Waterloo Region to read the same book, discuss it, attend special events and, in September, meet the author. For full details, visit the official website.
