Chatterbooks children’s reading groups

Libraries news and updates

From August 2021 we will be making significant changes to our IT and computer systems. Some of our services will be unavailable between Wednesday 4 and Thursday 19 August. For details please see our library news page.

From Monday 19 July we will be following step four of the Government guidelines in opening up our services. For details please see our coronavirus information page.

Chatterbooks reading groups encourage children to have a lot of fun with their reading. Children have an opportunity to talk about the books they have been reading, get new reading ideas and take part in fun activities inspired by the books, including crafts, quizzes and games.

Groups meet monthly in the library. Sessions last for 45 minutes to 1 hour, and it's free to join a group. Chatterbooks is for children aged 7–11 years, but check the details for each group to find the exact age range that each one caters for.

To get an idea of what our Chatterbooks groups get up to, take a look at our Chatterbooks Blog.

A range of online Chatterbooks resources to keep children entertained are available from the Reading Agency.
