If you enjoy reading a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, trying out something different and sharing your thoughts with others in a relaxed setting, then joining a reading group could be for you!

Meetings usually last an hour, with the emphasis being on having fun and getting to read things that you might not normally read. Most of the titles chosen are contemporary fiction, often fairly new but also tried and tested at reading groups elsewhere, so there should be much food for thought and plenty to talk about at meetings.

Meetings are run by group members themselves, with support from a member of the library staff. Books are provided and there is no charge.

Or you may be interested in joining one of short story reading groups, which are led by an experienced reading group leader.

Our reading groups are held on the following days:

  • Cadishead Library – 3rd Monday of the month at 11.00am
  • Eccles Library – 3rd Tuesday of the month at 2.00pm
  • Height Library – 4th Thursday of the month at 10.30am
  • Irlam Library – 3rd Tuesday of the month at 10.00am
  • Pendleton Library – 2nd Wednesday of the month at 10.30am
  • Swinton Library – 2nd Tuesday of the month at 2.00pm
  • Walkden Library – 1st Thursday of the month at 10.30am
  • Winton Library – 2nd Thursday of the month at 10.30am

We look forward to seeing you!
