Relax, meet new people and share stories

by Sandra Issar

Join the new ‘Shared Reading’ group which meets weekly at Prescot Library.

Shared Reading is for everybody, whether you love books or have never read before.

Drop in for a friendly chat and to hear a brilliant story read out loud – no pressure to read!

The group runs every Wednesday at 11am at Prescot Library, it’s open to everyone and free to attend.

The sessions are delivered by The Reader, a national charity which wants everyone to experience and enjoy great literature.

Shared Reading brings together a group of people, one of them a trained Reader Leader who reads a great novel, short story or poem aloud. The leader will stop and talk about what has just been read. There is no need for you to read aloud or speak  unless you would like to– it’s fine to just listen.

Simply turn up on the day, or to find out more, please speak to a member of Prescot Library staff.
