Do you love reading?
Do you enjoy talking about books?
Would you like to share your ideas for a good read?
A readers group is a group of people who meet regularly to discuss books they have been reading. Groups range from friends who meet in each other's homes, to groups set up in libraries or bookshops. Readers group members discover new authors and titles, widen their reading choices and meet other readers in a friendly, informal setting.
South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture's libraries run readers groups in a number of libraries around the authority. See the table below for a list of groups currently running in libraries.
