There are four Book Clubs to choose from.The maximum number in a group is usually eight people to aid and facilitate a sound discussion. Each group is independent and the choice of books to be read is down to each group. A book a month is read then discussed at the group meeting. Books are selected from the list of books made available by Southport Library. All groups are welcoming and friendly and offer a socialable and friendly evening with like minded people.
