The Reader in Withington Library, 12 January–20 July 2022, free entry - Visit now

The Reader are running a new hour-long Shared Reading Group for adults in Withington Library, fortnightly on a Wednesday evening, from 6.30pm. These groups are a wonderful opportunity to listen to great stories and poems being read aloud, and then to have a chat about them. There’s no pressure to talk – you can just come along and listen if you prefer. Shared Reading is a great chance to meet others in the community, and to hear some amazing literature. And it’s free!
