How book groups work

To start a book group with Book Groups Tasmania, all you need is:

  • a minimum of three and a maximum of 12 members
  • a member who is happy to act as Group secretary to
    • register your book group with Libraries Tasmania
    • pick up the books from a library and distribute them to members
    • return the books to us by the due date.

Then find somewhere to meet. The form of discussion is up to the group's members. New members can join throughout the year, up to a maximum of 12 people.

Registering or renewing a book group?

The book group's secretary is our main point of contact with the group. After your secretary registers your new group, we then email your group registration number and password to get you started.

Groups renew each year to confirm group and member details.

If you would like to start or renew your own book group, please complete this form.
