The library system I work for is trying to figure out how to merge book clubs and excess library books. I haven't ever been a part of a book club, so I come to all of you for advice and feedback.
There are about 20 libraries in our system, so we usually end up with about 20 copies of certain titles. After a while, these titles are sent to a Harvesting collection. We want to figure out how to use these books, instead of just letting them collect dust on the shelves.
For those of you in book clubs, what do you look for in a book club? How do you go about the book selection? by genre, author, Oprah's bookclub, best seller list?
How do you think the library should try to approach book club members into hosting their meetings at a library instead of, say a cafe?
Thanks so much for you ideas! I really appreciate this!
