Book Chat

Do you enjoy reading and want to meet like-minded people? Do you sometimes struggle to decide what to read and want to try something new?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, why not join one of the Book chat reading groups that meet in libraries across the borough?

Reading groups are free, informal gatherings of people of all ages who meet on a regular basis to talk about books and to share their enthusiasm for reading.

A number of Book chat groups meet across the borough. Details are as follows

Aveley Library: Every Saturday at 3pm.

Chafford Hundred Library: Third Monday of each month, 7.30pm – 9pm.

Corringham Library: First Saturday of each month, 2pm – 4pm.

Blackshots Library: Last Tuesday of each month, 6.30pm – 8pm.
