Reading Groups across our libraries

Reading groups are fun and rewarding and they change the private and personal experience of reading into a shared one.

Join a reading group and read, share and explore new books and authors.

Reading groups  meet and discuss a book or books that they have read and share their opinions. The members of the group normally agree to read a particular book, and then discuss their own thoughts, experiences and impressions at the next meeting. Joining is free and most groups welcome new members. It’s also a great way to meet people with similar interest and make new friends.

These groups usually meet once a month to discuss the book of choice over a cup of tea. Some members read specific types of books, e.g. crime novels and others try a variety of genres.
