Reading Friends

​Reading Friends connects people by starting conversations through reading. It gives opportunities to meet others, share stories, make new friends and have fun.

Northamptonshire Libraries are now offering residents of West Northamptonshire the chance to become Reading Friends. This national programme, developed by The Reading Agency, matches people through shared hobbies and interests, to help develop new connections and bring enjoyment.  

Reading Friends are sessions where volunteers and participants have discussions using reading as a conversation starter. The sessions are participant led and we are currently holding them over the telephone so you don't need to be able to get to a library to take part.
