Book Clubs

Elderberry Book Chat

Looking for your next great read?

Elderberry Book Chat is a monthly book group held at Napier Library, and everyone is welcome to come along, talk about favourite books and learn more about the library.

The friendly library staff share titles they have enjoyed recently, and you are welcome to share your favourite books and authors too.

The library catalogue can be a challenge, so Book Chat is an opportunity to ask questions and learn how to better use it.

There’s no charge for the Elderberry Book Chat, so come along, have a chat over a cuppa, and pick up a book to borrow.

Elderberry Book Chat is held on the first Wednesday of every month from 10.30 to 11.30 at Napier Library. For more information, phone the library on 834 4180, or just come along!

Book Club

Share the love of books and reading with other like-minded people.

Our book club meets on the first Thursday evening of the month from 5.15pm to 6.30pm at Napier Library. Bring a book along to discuss. Meet at the first floor seminar room. Be sure to be early because we close the library at 5.30pm.

For more information, phone the library on 834 4180.
