Reading Groups for Everyone is one of The Reading Agency’s programmes, run in partnership with the Society of Chief Librarians.
Here we celebrate and share all the great things that reading groups and book clubs offer. You can find your nearest reading group, search for your next title to read and take advantage of free promotions, competitions and visits from authors.
We’ve also got resources on how to set up a reading group, advice on running events and tips on how to work with children and young people.
