Book Group in a Bag

Just to let you know that the Library has some wonderful books for book groups – the selection of titles by author is listed below. There are generally 10 books in a book bag (although more may be available if you have a larger book group). The Friends’ sorting volunteers try to keep extra copies of these books as they are donated. This is a great way to read a classic and enjoy a discussion. Try a new piece of non-fiction and be taken away! Experience another culture or another time. Set a date to meet your friends and enjoy the reading experience!
