The BA and the Reading Agency are planning activity around National Reading Group Day, and are calling on booksellers and libraries to collaborate to create great events around NRGD on 30th June.

Over 270 bookshops are signed up for IBW and NRGD and we will shortly be producing lists of libraries signed up for the campaign too.  We are inviting bookshops who already have vibrant links with their local libraries to let us know – and to help create case studies to inspire other partnerships.

Bookshops and libraries have so much in common, especially in local areas – often the audience at library reading groups are bookshop customers and vice versa – we want to make sure that National Reading Group Day is an occasion for everyone to benefit – sharing books, a love of reading and the pleasure of visiting bookshops and libraries.

We will be producing point of sale posters and resource packs for bookshops and libraries shortly, and in the meantime, booksellers can take a look at the Reading Groups for Everyone website, which has lots of information about reading groups around the country as well as resources – www.readingroups.org
