Evergreen Online Book Club

bookclub.jpg

Evergreen Indiana Library Consortium has a Book Club! In this online community, you will connect with other library patrons and community members through the enjoyment of reading and discussing books related to lifelong learning, social issues, literature, psychology, and other user-submitted ideas. 

 

There is no cost to participate – you just have to get a copy of the book from your preferred source.  Free ebooks are available for download for patrons of Evergreen Indiana public libraries; you may also borrow the book in print or audiobook from your local Evergreen Indiana library. You can sign up at http://www.pbc.guru/evergreenlibrary or keep reading to learn more.  Titles change about every 60 to 90 days to allow for time to read and participate.

How it works 

The book club will connect through a private online forum where members can discuss the current book and network with each other. The group will spend approximately two months on each book, so you'll have plenty of time to read. You can sign up and learn more here: http://www.pbc.guru/evergreenlibrary 

 

Why should you join? 

There are three main reasons we hope you'll be excited to participate in our book club:

  1.  Increase Your Connection to the Evergreen Indiana Library Consortium Community

  2.  Embrace Lifelong Learning and Growth

  3.  Reading is good for you!
