Book Clubs

Book Sets for Book Clubs

Community members can borrow Book Club Sets consisting of 5 or 10 copies of recent titles. The sets are refreshed yearly so titles are kept current and shared by a group of provincial libraries. Talk to our interlibrary loan staff to reserve a set for your group.

Check out the current Book Club Set titles:

We recommend reserving sets well ahead of the date(s) needed to ensure your choice is available. You should also have an alternative title in case your first choice is not available.

Book Lovers’ Night Out

Book Lovers’ Night Out consists of a fun, low-cost evening built around a love of books, discussion, and companionship. We meet monthly from September to June at a local restaurant.

See what we are reading this month and check the schedule at: Book Lovers Night Out (event page)

This program is coordinated by Smithers Public Library and sponsored by the Wetzin’kwa Community Forest Corporation.
