All Reading Libraries will be closed Monday 25 December to Monday 1 January. Normal opening hours resume on 2 January.

Do you run or provide any services for book groups or other groups?

We run a number of book groups for adults and children, and two writing groups. You can find out details about when they happen and where they are in our pdf icon book group information leaflet. [59kb]

We have over 150 titles in our book club collection. You can use the online catalogue to see the selection of book group sets available.

Choose a member of your group to be the 'named user' and register your book group at Central Library. If the named user lives outside Reading the group will have to pay £5 per set borrowed. To reserve a set, please email BookGroups@reading.gov.uk.

We also offer drama and vocal sets for drama groups and choirs. Contact Central Library for further details.
