How Libraries Can Help Book Groups

One of the best RA opportunities in the public libraries comes from the interaction between the librarians and book group participants. Whether it is a library sponsored book group, or simply a patron who attends a private book club, book group participants and librarians have much to gain from working together.

The Booklist Online Book Buzz Blog (for which I also have a permanent link on the right hand side bar of this blog) recently published an article entitled "25 Ways Libraries Can Serve Book Groups." As the author states, "Libraries need to recognize book group readers as one of their core audiences, a population that deserves “extra-mile” service."

I could not agree more. Take a look at these useful tips.
