Reading groups

City Centre Teenage Reading Group

The Teen Reading Group will re-commence after the summer break on Wednesday 6 September 4.30pm to 5.30pm at City Library.

The group offers the opportunity to meet with young people outside of your home area and school to chat about books and reading. We also have lots of opportunities to go to author events, theatre and local visits.

It is a friendly, informal group and we enjoy reading anything and everything (you don't have to be the "best reader ever".) The group meets monthly and is open to young people age 12 to 18 years.

There are always refreshments and there are lots of freebies over the course of the year. It is all about fun and gaining confidence to talk to other people from outside your circle of friends.

The group has been running since December 2007 and continues to be very successful offering young people the chance to chat about what they are reading and meet new friends from different parts of Bradford, different schools, age groups and cultural backgrounds as well as broadening their understanding of others opinions. It has taken part in all sorts of events and visits and continues to offer young people a reading group that offers variety.

If you are interested in joining the group contact Christinea Donnelly, Development Officer for Young People or drop in on Wednesday 6 September.

Home Educated Reading Group

The Home Educated Reading group meets on the first Tuesday of the month at Keighley Library 11am to 12noon. The group is open to families who choose to home school their children. The emphasis is on the enjoyment of reading. The group write reviews, enter writing and book-related competitions and enjoy drawing and illustration. The group provides an environment to listen to others' opinions and to take part in discussions. It caters for a wide range of ages and ability with parents included too. New families who home educate are welcome.
