Furness

A Good Read

The group meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month in a downstairs room at the Coronation Hall at 10.30am.

We are a group of 12 people who enjoy reading and discussing a variety of books. We currently have one vacancy in our group.

As a group we pay £12 per year for the loan of 12 books (1 each month) from Carlisle library. See - Cumbria Libraries Reading Groups

We have a month to read the book before we gather to discuss it.
