Library Reading Groups

 

Why not join a Cavan Library Reading Group?

We have a number of very active reading groups and support those groups with great books; regular meetings; lots of information on books and writers and a great programme of writer visits.

We currently have four active Reading Groups, one "As Gaeilge" group and one Audio Book Club! They are extremely popular and our oldest is running for 16 years! New members are always welcome to join any of our reading groups. Our meetings are informal, relaxed and are a great way to have some fun with lively discussions!

We have four active English reading groups:

(1) The Johnston Central reading group was established in 1999.

(2) The Bailieborough reading group was established in 2008.

(3) The Cootehill reading group was established in 2002.

(4) The Belturbet reading group was established in 2015.

 

We have an active Irish language group at Johnston Central Library:
