Reading Ideas

Wollongong City Libraries will occasionally assemble a list of recommended texts on a topic or event. These are selected from staff and community suggestions and present a great opportunity to dip your toe into unfamiliar territory, or brush-up on a topic you are passionate about.

Check back regularly for new titles and lists.

Wollongong City Libraries is committed to providing a welcoming, supportive and inclusive environment for everyone. To celebrate our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer community, our staff have curated a list of favourite and lesser-known LGBTIQ texts. Each is available for borrowing in our catalogue.

If there's a LGBTIQ work you think should be in our catalogue, suggest an item. 🏳️‍🌈

Join a book club

Book clubs are a great way to challenge yourself and read something you might not have thought to pick up. We have more than a dozen book clubs across most of our libraries. Visit our Book Clubs page to find a group.

You can also check out our Book Club Conversations page for posts about reading ideas, book recommendations and more.
