Adelaide Reads & Reading Groups

Adelaide Reads

Launched in September, 2014, the Adelaide Reads program, is an online, interactive reading opportunity allowing the community to connect with each other through reading and engaging.

Visit the Adelaide Reads Blog to read the latest entry and discuss this month's topic with guest bloggers, Library staff and Adelaide's reading community.

Adelaide Reads - Read, Think, Engage with us!

The views expressed in this article or video are, unless otherwise stated, those of the author and do not reflect the views, policy or position of the City of Adelaide and the City of Adelaide accepts no responsibility for any such opinions, advice or information.

Reading and Conversation Groups - new!

Unlike Book Groups there is no specific book to read. Instead, each member shares what they are currently reading or a book that has changed their life.

 

Story Lounge - new!

Story Lounge is Storytime for adults, with handpicked stories and poems read aloud by members in a relaxed setting.

 

Join a Book Club - now recruiting new members!

Read great books, meet new people.

We’re looking for new members at all of our Adelaide Library Service locations.

Each month Book Group members read a specific title and come together to discuss their thoughts.
