Library Services

Book Discussion Group Lending Service

These titles are available from the Gawler Public Library for loan to members of local book discussion groups. Most titles have 10 copies available.
The book discussion group lending service lends books to members of groups in the local community to encourage lively literary discussion. Formal and informal groups of all sizes are welcome but those with more than ten members may need to source extra copies through other channels.
All members of a group must be members of the Gawler Public Library and each group will need to nominate a secretary who can act as a group coordinator and contact person. Secretaries will organise meeting times and locations and nominate a list of preferred titles which will then be allocated by the library based on availability.
