Join CUE Library’s Book Club

Did you know that reading for fun has mental and physical health benefits?

What are we reading?

Thank you to everyone who voted and left comments for their preferred book club book on our Instagram! Our first book will be The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

How often will we meet? 

We will meet online to discuss a new book about once every three or four weeks. We’re very open to student feedback on the frequency of our meetings! 

Our first meeting will take place on:

How do I get a copy?

To ensure free and equitable access to the books we’re reading, we’ve decided to use ebooks from the Edmonton Public Library’s Freading database. This database provides users with access to ebooks without wait times.

If you do not already have an Edmonton Public Library card, register for an L-Pass and use your CUE ID card to access everything EPL has to offer.

Want to try out EPL’s Freading? See our instructions on How to Set Up an Account with the Freading App (this set-up only has to be done once).


Why do we have a book club?

As part of the CUE Wellness Initiative, Wellness Is Here, we invite you to join our book club to gain the benefits of recreational reading and build connections with other students, staff, and faculty.
