Reading Groups

Reading groups are a great way to relax and share your love of books and reading. East Dunbartonshire Libraries support many local Reading Groups.

Some of these groups meet in libraries and others are independently run. If you are interested in joining a reading group or are thinking or starting one up we can help.  Joining a Reading Group can help you discover new authors and titles, widen your reading choices and meet other readers in a friendly, informal setting. Why not ask for more information the next time you are in the library?

We have a dedicated Reading Group Collection, a collection of multiple copy fiction and non-fiction available for reading groups to borrow listed within our documents section.  

If you would like to borrow any of these titles for your reading group please ask at your local library. Or if you would like to suggest any titles for inclusion in the collection  please complete a suggestion form.

If you  aren't able to find a Reading Group at a time and place that suits you  or are just  not the joining type, why not think about an online Reading Group?
