Reading Friends


Reading Friends meet regularly to chat and share stories.

We get together with a good book, poem or newspaper article to start everyone talking. You can meet new people, make friends, chat and have a laugh.

Everyone is welcome. Why not give it a try?


Join us at West Barnes Library on Mondays, 3.00-4.00pm.

Please book via West Barnes Library as spaces are limited: 020 8274 5789,


Reading Friends is a nationwide programme developed by The Reading Agency and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. It is an intergenerational programme that empowers, and connects people experiencing loneliness by starting conversations through reading.
