Looking for a book club or a reading group? Find out about shared reading!
Our weekly groups are listed below. Some of our library-based groups have returned to their weekly meetings in 'real life', and we are excited to have been able to launch a new library group at Ashby, but we continue to offer 'virtual' groups, using Zoom, so that you can experience shared reading from the comfort of your own home. Please contact us using the details at the bottom of the page if you'd like to know more about any of these groups or join one.
Wednesday evening Zoom group
This group meets via Zoom every Wednesday from 7.00-8.00pm. This is a shorter session which provides an ideal taster for shared reading. Our focus is on poems and shorter pieces. Open to all, you can join by video or telephone. Contact us, and we can send you joining details.
Thursday Zoom group
This group meets via Zoom every Thursday from 2.30-4.00pm. Open to all, you can join by video or telephone. Contact us, and we can send you joining details.
