Starting in February Merton Libraries are taking part in ‘Reading Friends’, a nationwide programme developed by The Reading Agency and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
Reading Friends aims to empower, and connect people experiencing loneliness by starting conversations through reading. Merton Libraries hope these sessions will provide a space where people can make new friends, have a good chat, and have fun!
Sessions will run weekly, on Mondays from 3.00-4.00pm at West Barnes Library (next to Motspur Park Station), starting on Monday 17 February.
The first session will start by sharing stories about where you live and talking about how your local area has changed since you have moved there. Attendees are welcome to bring in photos, articles or anything else that they would like to share!
