Participate in Libraries’ Book Clubs from Home

Book lovers don’t need to let COVID-19 social distancing keep them from sharing their opinions and feelings about books with other readers.

Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) will offer a different format for book-club meetings this summer. All book-club meetings will take place online through Zoom so that readers can interact with others in real time and participate from the comfort and safety of home.

FBCL book clubs represent a wide variety of books and genres. Book clubs that were previously specific to particular branches can now be enjoyed by readers all across the library system.

Books can be requested by calling the libraries, or by placing them on hold in the online catalog. They can be picked up from the libraries through FBCL’s Books and More! Curbside Pick-Up service. Digital versions of the books are also available for download from FBCL’s eLibrary.

Because the book club meetings will take place over the Internet via Zoom, participants should register for the meetings by going to the FBCL website – – click on “Classes and Events” and register for the book club meetings of their choice. A link to the Zoom sessions will be emailed to all who have registered.
