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

Apply for a place for groups starting in October 2019.

Chatterbooks groups meet once a month in the library to discuss the books they're reading and to enjoy book-related activities.

Membership costs £10 and lasts for 1 school year (£5 for families on low income). Members receive an exclusive Chatterbooks pack and other book-related goodies.

Places are limited, so we give priority to children who haven't attended a Chatterbooks group before.

After you apply for a Chatterbooks place, we'll email you to confirm whether you've been accepted into the group or placed on the waiting list. If your application is successful, we'll send you a link to the ticketing page. Once we receive your payment, we'll send you dates and details of your chosen group.
