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, or you can join us for Book Chats at Balwyn. Boroondara Library Service staff will read and discuss thought-provoking books with a group of passionate and enthusiastic readers.

We also provide book kits to use in your own book group.
