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.
The first Friday of the month, 10am to 12pm.
The last Friday of the month, 4.30pm to 5.30pm.
The first Wednesday of the month, at 6pm.
The second Wednesday of the month, 10am to 12pm.
