Book Groups

Book Lovers’ Chatter – online Facebook book group

South Ayrshire Libraries have set up a new Facebook group to provide adult readers in South Ayrshire with an online space to discuss books, reading, and to share reviews and recommendations with others. This is not a traditional reading group where everyone reads the same book at the same time. This group will provide both customers and library staff with a safe space to post their recommendations or start a chat about their favourite authors, or anything else at all that is book related. The aim is to experience a wee taste of some of the things we miss doing during regular face to face visits to our local libraries. If you are interested in joining the group please visit our Facebook page.

Book Lovers’ Lounge – ebooks for book groups

We have created a new section on our ebook site called Book Lovers’ Lounge.

Book Lovers’ Lounge is where we will gather together all of the titles we have that are suitable for book groups. Every title in this section can be checked out by several readers at the same time.

Find out more about our ebooks for Book Groups offer.

    1. Hi Jane, the group will meet at the end of this month to decide if they are going to continue with the Thursday evening Book Group at Alloway. If you would like us to keep you updated about this please email and as soon as we know how things will progress we will be in touch. We have just updated our book group page – there are two groups who meet at Ayr’s Carnegie Library at 6pm. Best wishes.
