Read books together in a book club

Six books standing on a table.

Borrow a book bag with everything you need to start a book club with your friends.

A book club is a way to read socially and to widen your reading experience. Together you will explore books and reflect on what you have read. You decide how you want to run your book club.

How to start your book club

  1. Gather your friends who want to read a book and discuss it.
  2. Choose a book bag with the title you want to read.
  3. The Main Library: One of you need to register the bag in the help desk when it is staffed. NOTE! You cannot borrow a book bag during the extended opening hours.
    The Medical Library and the School of Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Meal Science Library: send an email to This is an email address with your email address, the book you and your friends want to read from the list below, and what library you want us to send the book bag to (the Medical Library or the School of Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Meal Science Library).

The book bag contains five copies of the book you have chosen as well as information and tips on how you can get started with your book club.

The book bags have a 60-day loan period. When you are done, return the book bag to your library help desk when it is staffed.
