COVID-19: some of our facilities have reopened. You must be fully vaccinated to enter.

Book groups are a great way to find new books and meet people with similar interests.

Join a book group

We host monthly book groups at Hawthorn and Kew and fortnightly Chatterbooks sessions online. Join Boroondara Library Service staff to read and discuss thought-provoking books with a group of passionate and enthusiastic readers.
