Porirua Libraries – Welcome to the Club

Porirua - Pātaka Museum of Arts and Cultures.

The message from Porirua Libraries is ‘Come & join our relaxed, informal monthly book clubs.’

At the book clubs you will find lively discussions, fresh ideas for reading, and you’ll connect with fellow book lovers.

“The book clubs are theme based, so have a look at our themes list below and come with a book on that theme – or failing that, just bring whatever you’re reading.”
