Our Audio Book Groups are for people who have a visual impairment or face barriers in reading printed books. These friendly groups offer an opportunity to share books, listen to new authors or old favourites, hear other people’s views and recommendations, and meet new people with a shared interest.
Meetings are held once a month. Members take home an audio book on CD then return to the next meeting for a relaxed & informal discussion lead by the group leader. Refreshments are provided and members are fully involved in choosing the books their group will read.
