The Word Reading Group (first Tuesday of the month)

Unlock your imagination and discover the wonderful world of books on your doorstep.

Books are great when enjoyed on your own, or as part of a group. If you like to talk about what you have read, then one of our reading groups could be for you. It's a great way to develop your skills, improve your knowledge and meet new people at the same time.

The purpose of a reading group is to give people confidence to develop their own reading and to empower them to choose what they want across a wider range.

There are some common assumptions about reading groups which can deter people from joining, such as; it will be like being back at school, you will be expected to publicly analyse a book, you can't just sit at the back and listen, or that you have to study books rather than just read them. Once you join a library based reading group you will see that our groups are fun and not like this at all.

Come along

We meet once a month on a Tuesday, 1.45pm to 2.45pm. Our discussions are lively and enjoyable.

For more information and to book you place please contact Pauline Martin, 0191 424 7805
