Books and reading
Love reading....love books
If you loved your last book but are wondering what you are going
to read next, let your local library help you decide. Whether you
are looking for the latest bestseller, the book of the
film or an enthralling classic we have thousands of titles to
keep you inspired and entertained. Just ask one of our staff and
let them know what you like or what you're looking for. They'll be
pleased to help find you something suitable and will even suggest
books and authors that you've never heard of if you want to try
something new for a change.
We have hardbacks, paperbacks, books in large print, talking books
on tape or CD and now even e-books
that you can read on your computer !
Have you ever wished that you had someone to
share your views with when you’ve just finished reading an amazing
story? Then why not join one of the many reading groups that meet
in libraries across the borough? Throughout the year we have a
varied and exciting programme of reading and writing events. You
could have the chance to talk to your favourite author at our
regular "Meet the Author" sessions or express your own creativity
at one of our Writing and Poetry Workshops.
If you love books and wish to share your experiences with other
people why not come along to one of our many reading groups that
are held in our libraries throughout the Rochdale borough.

You don't have to have "bad eyesight" to finding reading a
chore: there are times when you want to read a book but your eyes
really don't want to make much of an effort (especially if you have
spent all day staring at a computer screen).
