Book Groups

Connect with other book-lovers at one of our groups.

Book Chat

This group meets at both the Elma Turner and Stoke Libraries. There is no set book or need to register, just come along and chat to others about what you've been reading lately.

Elma Turner Library - Second Tuesday of each month, 10.30am.

Stoke Library - Third Wednesday of every month, 5.30pm

Dementia-Friendly Reading Group

On the first Wednesday of the month, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m, we also run a Dementia-Friendly Book Group in the Elma Turner Library in Nelson. This is open to people at all stages of memory loss as well as their whānau or carers. There's no need to book in, just pop along for a cup of tea and conversation as our librarian reads you a story.

Riverside Reads

Immerse yourself in captivating stories, connect with fellow book lovers, and enrich your reading experience.
Sign up and we will provide a copy of the book for you to read before we meet.

First Wednesday of the month in the Elma Turner Library, 5.30pm. For our current read and to sign up for next month, get in touch.
