Young Adult Readers' Group

Back To Top

A monthly book group for young people, aged 10–14.

The group meets on the last Tuesday of the month at 4.15 – 5.00pm at Urmston Library.

Our meetings are fun, friendly and encourage debate; the aim is to help young people to develop a ‘love of reading’ for pleasure. We pick a different book every month that aims to challenge our young people and make them think. This will include poetry, non-fiction, comic books, and a range of teen fiction.

Ask at the counter for more info, call 0161 912 3189, or email      urmston.library@trafford.gov.uk
