Vivacity are keen to recruit new members to the Visually Impaired audio  reading group which takes place monthly on a Friday at 10.00 am at Peterborough Central Library.

“Reading groups nationally are growing in popularity and this is a chance for visually impaired readers to join in, using audio books or large print. Adults of any age are welcome to join.” Elaine Wilkinson, reading promotion librarian

A member of staff from the library facilitates the group and helps to order the books so everyone gets their own copy at the right time. Members read a range of fiction, and some non-fiction chosen from the RNIB Talking Books service. Talking books will be available on cassette or a special MP3 format disk, which can be played on many DVD machines, home computers, MP3 disk players or RNIB Daisy players. Readers who use large print are also welcome to join.

Members all read/listen to the same book, and discuss it at the meeting. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends, discover new and different authors and have a nice trip out! You will be met at the door and taken to the group where you can enjoy some light refreshments.
