Readers' groups

We host regular readers' groups in libraries across the borough to discuss books, authors and genres.

They are independent groups, open to any member of the public who already is, or would like to become, a member of the library. The groups are friendly and informal with new members always welcome. Please contact the library to confirm that a group is taking place, as the times and dates may change.

If you're unable or too busy to join one of the readers’ groups at our branches, we have a digital club where we invite our online followers to read works by an author of the month. Follow us on FacebookTwitter or Instagram for more information and to join in the fun.
