classic bookgroup

Our Classic Bookgroup will be affected by the government’s 50% cut to Ontario libraries.

The library service bookgroups rely on is the Interlibrary Loan service.

The arbitrary cancellation of this service requires another approach to keep our bookgroup functioning.

  1.  We can choose from 40 sets of books set aside for ‘book club sets’;
  2.  We can use digital means to share the content of a book.

May 13 at 1:00 pm we will meet at the Picton branch (lower floor) to discuss They Left Us Everything by Plum Johnson.

June 10 will be a test of our new system of choosing books for bookgroups or for individuals wanting material not available within our PEC library system (since couriers have been cancelled and even the IT website allowing books and library material to be shared has been taken down).

Please consider the choices below for our classic bookgroup for June:

  1.  Away, or The Stone Carvers by J. Urquhart
  2. Jane Eyre by C. Bronte
  3. The Year of the Flood by M. Atwood
  4. A Good Man by G. Vanderhaeghe
