Cape Breton Regional Library

Book Clubs

Through the support of the Federal New Horizons for Seniors Program, and generous donations by patrons, CBRL offers Seniors Book Clubs that meet in library branches and in communities served by bookmobiles, and now offers access to book club kits to Community Book Clubs across the region, whether members are seniors or not.

More than 180 titles are available in sets of ten print books per kit.  Many of these titles are also available as eBooks, audiobooks, CD books or in Large Print for those who prefer those formats.

An online Book List with descriptions and links to Goodreads to access reviews is available.


Seniors Book Clubs:

To start or join a book club that meets at one of CBRL’s branches or is served by one of the two bookmobiles, please contact the individual branch or bookmobile.

Community Book Clubs:

If you are part of an existing community or private book club, or wish to start a book club that meets in members homes or in the community, you can have access to the CBRL book club sets on an ongoing or intermittent basis.

To register your club, fill out a new club Registration Form, and read the Information for New Community Book Clubs.

If you have any questions, please contact your local branch, or Chris Thomson at, or 902-562-3279, ext. 3.
