Many AJL members host book clubs in their libraries. Book clubs are a great way for book-lovers to enjoy reading and the pleasure of one another's company, and to establish a small community within the library. A book club has the potential to create life-long readers and is an effective discipline for encouraging people to read more or outside the genres they normally gravitate towards. A Jewish book club can also create life-long learners — providing a unique opportunity for participants to learn about, explore, and discuss Judaism through literature. In addition, a book club can increase library usage and establish dedicated library patrons.
