Not a Reading Group is back!

We will continue to meet in the Storyhouse Kitchen, and online every four weeks.  We are looking forward to seeing all booklovers in the building or on screen.

Meeting ID: 875 2670 5519
Passcode: 070303


This is not a book group as you know it!

There will be no required reading and we won’t discuss a specific title. Instead, we’ll talk about books that we’ve read, those that we’ve enjoyed, those that we would recommend and those we are looking forward to. Here at Storyhouse Library we think that escaping into the world of books is a very good way to spend an hour. So if you agree, come and join us for book talk, whatever your preferred genre. Who knows what new titles will be added to your ‘to be read’ list?!


Not A Reading Group is now part of Reading Friends, a Read, Talk Share befriending programme from The Reading Agency.
Reading Friends brings people together to read, share stories, meet new friends and have fun; tackling social isolation, supporting mental health and wellbeing.
