READING groups are being encouraged to choose their next title for discussion from Darlington library.

The town centre library, in Crown Street, has numerous copies of titles that are available on free loan to reading groups in the borough.

Library staff can offer advice on books that were enjoyed by the library's reading groups and point out the ones that provoked the most discussion.

The library's reading groups meet once a month - on a Monday evening and a Saturday afternoon at Cockerton library, on a Tuesday morning at Crown Street and on a Wednesday afternoon at Age Concern, in Beaumont Street West.

The library also runs a poetry reading group on a Wednesday afternoon.

For more information on how the library can help local groups, contact Jeannie Bishop on (01325) 349610.
