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. Are you visually impaired and want to be part of a Readers' Group? We can arrange for you to have access to large print books on CD or audio tapes.

You can find reader reviews of books you may like to read, search: Online library catalogue .
