MODERATORS SHOULD NOTE
Moderators should allow some extra time between delivery date and distribution date where book club members receive the book a month prior to their meeting. The important factor here is that the moderator be able to distribute copies at the meeting prior to their month of moderating, thus giving members adequate time to read the book before the next meeeting.
Each moderator is responsible for selecting, ordering (reserving) and ensuring that their selected copies are available for distribution one month prior to the month of their moderating meeting.
Additionally, the moderators are responsible for collecting and returning all copies of the book club set to the library after their moderation. The library will hold the moderator liable for any penalties or late charges which may be incurred should all copies not be returned.
Moderators can choose any title from the available book club sets, regardless if the title has been read by some of the members.
Moderators are free to organize and chair their moderating session as they see appropriate. They can use whatever sources they deem as appropriate for useful information, discussion questions and material relating to their session.
NEED MORE HELP
If moderators need more help, they can ask other club members who have moderated before for advice or assistance.
