Library Social Clubs

Share your passions and find your people

Looking for new friends who share your taste in books, movies, TV, podcasts, or music? Library Social Clubs are here!

How are themes selected?

Library staff invite theme suggestions from students via our student newsletter, social media (@UNCLibrary), a theme suggestions form, and whiteboards in Davis Library and the UL. We look for clusters in the suggestions to get a sense of demand and interest. Then we open sign-ups for a selection of the theme ideas.

Will every theme suggestion become a Social Club?

To make sure each Library Social Club has enough members to be successful, we set a minimum number of sign-ups in order for a Social Club to launch. One way to make sure the group you want is successful is to spread the word to your friends!

Will someone from the Library be in my Social Club?

No. Library Social Clubs are student-run. We’re here to give you an opportunity to connect with other students who share your interests, and to provide structure as needed. But these conversations are yours.

Who will lead the group?

Each Library Social Club will have a pair of student co-leaders.

At the end of the sign-up period, we’ll contact every student who signed up for each group and invite two students to self-nominate as group leaders.

What’s the timeline for launching?

In the fall semester of 2022, the theme suggestion period ended on Sept. 8 and sign-ups were open until October 17. We expect to launch the groups in mid- to late October.
