Reading Groups in Barking & Dagenham

Pen to Print helps to manage book groups in Barking and Dagenham Libraries. If you have a love of reading and would like to meet others who do too a Book Group or Reading Group is the ideal place to do this.  Reading Groups can be a great place to meet new people for an informal conversation about your latest read or you can all read a book together and compare notes!

We can help to arrange special author visits just for your group and get reading sets of books direct from publishers for your group to enjoy together. We can connect you with many other special offers and opportunities just for Reading Groups!

We can even support you to set up and host your own group and give you access to our Reading Group book collections borrowable from Barking & Dagenham libraries, along with advice and guidance on how you can host your group, working in partnership with The Reading Agency’s, Book Groups for Everyone.

If you would like to join a group in one of our Barking & Dagenham Community Hubs or Libraries let us know and we can support you.

If you are interested in joining a group let us know we can match you up with an existing group or set up a new group in your area.

We are celebrating National Reading Groups Day on 14 September by hosting sign-up sessions during our book festival ReadFest, book a free place : or just drop-in.

If you can’t make a sign-up session please register your interest online and we will contact you.
