Chatterbooks – reading groups for 8-12 year olds

Whether your child is already an avid reader or needing some inspiration, joining Chatterbooks is a great way to encourage them to have fun with books.

Chatterbooks groups meet once a month in the library for an hour to discuss the books they're reading.

It's free to join and members receive an exclusive Chatterbooks pack and other book-related goodies.

Chatterbooks membership lasts for 1 school year.
