Readers' groups

We can provide book sets for your readers' group for an annual subscription (£17 in 2018-19, subject to review). They can be borrowed for up to two months and sent to the Herefordshire library of your choice for collection. Our book sets offer 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 there is more information, including an application to join, in the Readers' groups resources section on this page.
