Readers' groups

We can provide book sets for your readers’ group for a yearly annual subscription of £16. They can be borrowed for up to two months and sent to your nearest library for collection. The book sets are a good range of titles including modern and classic fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Book sets available to borrow

If you would like to start a new group, then you can join the service by using the readers’ group form. Find out more about how to set up a group and how to apply to join the Readers' Group Service, in the resources section.
