Book Discussion Groups

Book groups are a great way to discover new books to read and meet new people.

Many Glasgow libraries have book groups – they meet once a month to discuss one or two books, supplied by the library service. Book groups are free, relaxed and informal – joining one is a great way to meet other readers and discover new authors.
