Do you enjoy reading and talking about books?
If you do, why not join our friendly and informal Reading Groups. They are a great way to read, share and explore new books and find new authors.
The way they work is that members choose a book to read over a month from our Reading Group Book List and then we meet to discuss it. There is something for everyone, including:
- Modern fiction
- Non - fiction
Facebook Reading Group
If you are unable to come to our groups in person you can join our Facebook Reading Group.
Derby Libraries Facebook Reading Group is a welcoming online space where members can join together to read, share, and explore books and find new authors. You can also join in the online conversation about the books you’ve read, new authors you’ve discovered, do some book reviews, make recommendations to the group a great place to share your love of reading!
We highlight books available for multiple downloads from our eLibrary so lots of people can read them at once – this is great for Reading groups, download the book and read at the same time as your friends.
The group is free to join and open to everyone
Running your own reading group
Do you run your own Reading Group or Book club? Would you like to meet in one of our Libraries?
We have a great selection of Reading Group Book sets for you to borrow.
Groups that meet in the library are entitled to a group ticket and sets can be delivered to a library of your choice.
The sets are popular reading group titles which we think you will enjoy discussing. You can download the list from the link below and discover some great book titles that your group can read next.
