Welcome to Chester Library Book Group

The Chester Library Book Group meetings take place in the Meeting Room at 1pm on the last Tuesday of the month, and last 1 hour. Group members suggest and put forward ideas for the books on the reading list and there is a choice of quality titles to read each month.
