The Queens Public Library (QPL) is launching a free online book club so bookworms can safely log on to discuss their latest readings.
Book club members will read a book every two to three months, the first being âHotel Angeline: A Novel in 36 Voicesâ.
QPL has partnered with Professional Book Club Guru, a book club management company that hosts the library book club on its Platform.
Book club members will discuss book selections in a private online forum hosted by a PBC Guru employee. The moderator will ask questions, share relevant articles, and facilitate conversation on the topics of each book.
QPL cardholders can download book selections as e-books through the Freading app. They can also search for a physical copy of the book selections at their local library branch on queenslibrary.org.
Those interested in joining the book club should Register before October 15 to participate in the first reading of the book.
Those who are not members of the Queens Public Library can also join the Book Club at no cost. However, they are responsible for obtaining their own copies of the reading selections.
Library staff also organize a online seminar Tuesday, October 13 at 7 p.m. to provide technical assistance to those who need help signing up to the book club or downloading eBooks.
