Film Club at King Cross Library - la Belle Noiseuse

You might have come to the conclusion that King Cross Library Film Club had run its course - but we have finally finished moving library staff around Calderdale and settled in at the new Central Library & Archives ... and we're ready to invite you to a new range of films and (sometimes) in a new location.

Reading Groups

Each group meets monthly when they air and share their views about the book they have just read, usually over a cup of tea or coffee!

Most groups discuss contemporary novels but we have discussed a few narrative non-fiction titles. If you are visually impaired and would like to be part of a Readers' Group, we can arrange for you to have access to large print books on CD or tape.

Find reader reviews of a book you may like to read by searching the online Library Catalogue.
