Book club eresources

Melbourne by Sophie Cunningham, University of New South Wales Press, 2012

It's no coincidence that Melbourne is a UNESCO City of Literature – its laneways, suburbs, streets and characters are an endless source of inspiration for writers.

It's also a fact that Melburnians are more passionate readers than other Australians, with the largest number of community book clubs in the country.

So, if you're feeling inspired by your immersion in Melbourne titles for our Thursday night book club, here are some ebooks to give you some great background reading on the topic, taking in history, memoir, walks and, of course, trams!

The Library has a huge range of free nonfiction ebooks, which you can either read online or download for up to seven days. To access eresources from home, you need to be a Victorian resident with current State Library membership. (Terms and conditions of use apply.)
