Your generosity can us help bring more people together like Dorothy and Steve
Reading Friends continues to make a difference, working together with public libraries during 2021-2022.
What we do
Reading Friends is The Reading Agency’s social reading and befriending programme. It connects people by starting conversations through reading, giving opportunities to meet others, share stories, make new friends and have fun.
Developed with funding from the National Lottery Community Fund and the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.
