Books Aloud is a reading group for both sighted and partially sighted members. The readers meet at Peterborough Central Library (in the L P Hartley Room) on the last Friday of the month to talk about the book they have read/listened to. The group is very friendly and informal, chatting about the books over a free cup of tea or coffee. They always welcome new members so come along and see if it’s for you – why not bring a friend too!
If you are coming unaccompanied, please call Elaine on 01733 864277 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, so that a member of staff or a volunteer can be at the front door of the library to guide you to the room and help you get settled.
Members choose the books based on a list of new books from RNIB, along with library staff recommendations. Book choice is always based on availability in both audio and printed format so that everyone gets a copy. Each member has a say on which books to read, so there is a wide selection ranging from non-fiction to all types of fiction. Something for everyone to enjoy!

Where: Peterborough Central Library – L P Hartley Room.
When: Last Friday of the month (except for December) from 10.30 – 11.30am.
Bring: Book if required and any ideas for the next book to read.
Partially sighted members use books from RNIB Talking Book Library, so you will need to join the RNIB Library. This is free and the library staff can help with the process if needed. RNIB has over 23,000 audio books which can be delivered to your door (and returned) for free.
