Book Club Registration

Ipswich Libraries offers Book Clubs the opportunity to register your book club with us. This entitles you to unique Book Club membership cards that allow you to check out the books from the Book Club Kits. The Book Club Coordinator can fill out the Book Club Registration Form here.


Book Club Membership

There are two types of book club membership; Book Club Coordinators and Book Club Members. Each membership type requires a separate Library card which can be obtained by filling in the registration form here and selecting the appropriate membership type. After you have registered you will need to go to an Ipswich Libraries branch to pick up your new card – please note: you will need to provide verification of your ID at the Library. Each member will be responsible for checking out one copy of the book in the Book Club Kit.


Book Club Coordinators

The Book Club Coordinator is responsible for registering the club, updating the club’s details, and placing reservations on the Book Club Kits.
