Results of Try a Bookclub
• 4 of 12 Children joined regular bookclubs
• Continuing engagement with participants
• Effects on Junior bookclub
• Reflection on role as facilitator
Summary
• Promotion:
• Always find ways to promote your bookclub to non users. I use the high interest in
Summer Stars, a national programme to identify interested parties outside the
bookclub regulars.
• Beyond the book:
• Always seek out new ways to discuss the book. Activities and outside engagement
can bring new voices to the chat.
• Know your audience:
• Work with your age groups abilities also their individual needs. Bookclubs should not
feel like examining a leaving cert text.
• Books are a window into the world:
• Want to create an inclusive culture in your library? Start with a small bookclub group,
give them books that challenge what is inclusive in real life and in the worlds of the
books they read and see how it changes their perception of the world around them.

  • 14. Results of Try a Bookclub • 4 of 12 Children joined regular bookclubs • Continuing engagement with participants • Effects on Junior bookclub • Reflection on role as facilitator
  • 15. Summary • Promotion: • Always find ways to promote your bookclub to non users. I use the high interest in Summer Stars, a national programme to identify interested parties outside the bookclub regulars. • Beyond the book: • Always seek out new ways to discuss the book. Activities and outside engagement can bring new voices to the chat. • Know your audience: • Work with your age groups abilities also their individual needs. Bookclubs should not feel like examining a leaving cert text. • Books are a window into the world: • Want to create an inclusive culture in your library? Start with a small bookclub group, give them books that challenge what is inclusive in real life and in the worlds of the books they read and see how it changes their perception of the world around them. chogan@kildarecoco.ie @ciahog on Twitter
