Adelaide Reading Groups

Reading & Conversation Groups

Unlike our 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

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

Join a Book Group - 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.
