From ther Book Group Buzz blog:
25 Ways Libraries Can Serve Book Groups
Lots of fun ideas. Others ideas that might be useful too:
1. Check out your shelves for sets of 6-10 bestsellers from a year or two ago. Create book club bags that hold a bunch of copies as well as the publishers reading guide.
2. Have a book club idea blog from your library shared by the whole system.
3. Set up a chat room or Facebook or Ning group for book clubs in your library area for folks to share ideas and discussions.
4. Popular book for clubs? Make sure you you link to Syndetics or Amazon reviews as well as the publisher’s reading guide.
5. Don’t forget to do a nuche club like a guy’s club, teen club, mom’s club, etc.
6. Start a virtual club that doeasn’t need to meet in person – perfect for the housebound, disabled, or busy working parents, etc.
7. Check out author videos online, in Syndetics or YouTube and use them to promote your club support.
