Book groups

Running your own book group

If you already run, or are part of a local book group we can provide book group sets free of charge from our collection of over 200 titles.  We can also help you set up your own book group, and provide book sets and support.

Once you’ve identified a few titles that you’re interested in please email Southwark Libraries with the details and we’ll be in touch.

Book sets are issued to a special outreach ticket which we’ll set up for you. The books are initially issued for six weeks and can be renewed twice so you can have 18 weeks in total. There are no fines on this type of ticket even if a couple of copies do end up going overdue!

The books sets can be delivered to any of the 12 Southwark libraries for you to collect from – so just pick whichever is the most convenient for you. You take the whole set and then distribute it yourself to members.

For more information about setting up a book group please contact us.
