Reading Groups hold informal, monthly meetings where their members can discuss books, sharing opinions on themes, story, writing etc..Each group has a leader who directs the discussion, but each person in the group is welcomed and encouraged to offer their own personal views and ideas about the book. The books that are read in each group are chosen collectively by the group’s members. The types of books chosen vary and don’t follow any particular theme or genre, unless specifically stated in the description of the group.

There are 3 groups who meet every month at Coppice Library and Wellbeing Centre. When members decide on the book they’re going to discuss, Trafford Libraries will arrange copies of it to be sent to the library to be picked up. The book is then discussed the following month at the group.
