Bookworms can mark National Reading Groups Day by joining one of a number of clubs at borough libraries.
Most libraries run monthly group meetings for members to discuss a range of books and will be celebrating the national day on Saturday.
New groups include:
- Generation X for people in their 20s and 30s and meets on the last Monday of each month at 6.15pm at Wokingham Library
- A Carers’ Book Group for people who care for others meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 10.30am at Wokingham Library
- Finchampstead Evening Book Group meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6pm at Finchampstead Library.
- Wargrave Library is also aiming to start up a new group for mums with young children and plans to meet on the first Monday of each month from 2.30pm.
Specialist group Wokingham Library Classics Book Group, for people who enjoy literature, meets on the second Thursday of each month at 6.30pm.
A non-fiction group also meets on the third Thursday of each month from 6.30pm, while a group called the VIPs for people with visual impairments, meets on selected Fridays.
‘Get into Reading’ are reading groups that meet weekly and focus on short stories, novels and poems. Group members read aloud, slowly, taking time over each text.
Seven to 11-year-olds can join Wokingham Book Borrowers, and 11 to 18-year-olds can join the Teen Book Group meeting at Wokingham Library on selected Thursday evenings.
