About us

People read for various reasons. Some read to broaden their perspective of the world and learn new things, some read to learn how to articulate their thoughts, some read to get inspiration, some read to get their mind free and see faraway places through the eye of their mind, some read to relax their mind after a tiring day full of hard work, deadlines and reports, while some read just for fun.

Whatever may be your reason for wanting to read, we at the BOOK CLUB are committed to helping you get hold of the book of your choice. It is our goal to provide a definitive reading experience to the members of IIT Kanpur, be it in procuring books, indexing them for easy access, making them available for reading or in letting you review them and see reviews others have made.

The Book Club comes under the Media and Cultural Council of the Students' Gymkhana. It is maintained and operated by a team of two coordinators and twenty secretaries, working on a completely voluntary basis.

During the semesters, the Club opens 7 days a week (one hour on weekdays, two hours on weekends).

In order to cater to all tastes, we maintain a diverse collection of books, classified under Fiction, Non-Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Classics, Poetry, Drama, Collections, Comics, Popular Science, Self Help, Romance, Biographies, Autobiographies, Bengali and Hindi.

Do drop in and see us sometime!
