Book Groups

Joining a book group

There are several book groups active in the Easingwold area. If you’re interested in joining one of them we can pass your details to local book group organisers who can then contact you.  Please email us:

Book groups online

Another option is to join an online book group. Reading Groups for Everyone is the UK’s largest reading group network. Whether you’re already in a reading group, want to join one or start a new one this is the place to go. Open a free account and join online groups that suit you.

In addition, North Yorkshire County Council run an online book group through the book website Goodreads. Find more information and sign-up here.

Starting a new book group

The community library is very happy to provide support for local book groups.

If you’d like to start a new group, the prospective group leader should call into the library to open a reading group account. An annual reading group subscription costs £25 and allows groups to request up to ten copies of a title subject to availability.

You’ll be provided with a library card for the group and an information sheet explaining how to order books online from county library stock for your group. Of course, you can also order books in person by calling into the library where we’ll be pleased to help.

Tip: Try to order titles at least two months in advance of your intended meeting date. You’re probably best choosing books that aren’t newly-published or current best-sellers to avoid a potentially long wait for sufficient copies
