Reading groups are about meeting people, enjoying reading and sharing thoughts and feelings about books. 

There are lots of reading groups across Nottinghamshire libraries. Some meet in library venues, others meet elsewhere while Inspire provides the books for them to collect. Groups usually meet once a month. You can even set up your own.

And if you don't want to commit to a regular group, why not come to one of our special reading events, drop in at one of our regular Reading Cafés or try out an online reading group?

If you live in Nottingham City the City Council maintain their own list of reading groups.

Setting Up a New Reading Group

Here are some Guidelines to help you get started. We can also advertise for new members to join the group.

The East Midlands Regional Reading Group Project has produced a reading pack with 12 downloadable sheets. These sheets detail everything you’ll need to know, from registering your group to how to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Online Reading Groups

If you’re unable to make it along to a group within your local area, an online reading group can provide the perfect alternative. Why not try one of these?
