Surrey Libraries supports over 600 reading groups across the county. We provide multiple copies of books, including brand new titles, to private and library-hosted groups.
Groups can choose any title in Surrey stock as long as there are least 15 copies in circulation for fiction titles, or 10 for non-fiction. To help you choose, please find at the foot of this page a regularly updated list of fiction and biography titles. This list is not exhaustive and staff at your local library will gladly make recommendations.
See the latest issue of our reading groups' newsletter (PDF) for lots more news, reviews and regular features.
