Glasgow Libraries support a range of book groups across the city e.g. Poetry, Classics, Crime - there really is something for everyone. Get together in the comfort of your local library with like-minded book lovers to discuss everything book related or borrow a set of our books and hold your own sessions wherever is best for you.

Find out where your nearest Book Group session is by looking at the Glasgow Life What's On pages.
