Reading groups


All libraries will be closed on Thursday 8 March for staff training, we apologise for any inconvenience caused. You can renew your items from your account

Libraries help reading groups to start up and choose books. The annual charge of £60 per group includes:

  • access to over 1,100 sets of books, delivered free to your local library
  • borrowing multiple copies of the same book
  • regular book magazines and newsletters.

There are also groups for children and teenagers which are free to join.

Ordering reading group books

Please ask library staff to reserve reading group books for you – they can’t be reserved online. We recommend planning the year ahead and booking them in advance.

We can also try to get copies of books for you that are not on the list.
