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. Ask for more information next time you are in the library, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Each month an eBook or eAudiobook is made available in our BorrowBox collection for lots of people to read at the same time – perfect for reading groups! These books are displayed on our BorrowBox website and in the BorrowBox app as 'Always Available'.
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 email email@example.com. Or if you would like to suggest any titles for inclusion in the collection please complete a suggestion form.
