An intro to our book groups & membership programmes...
The Book Discussion Scheme caters for people who:
- are looking to join an existing BDS book group

How our book groups work
We lend books and discussion notes to participating book groups. Groups make their book selections from our extensive catalogue.
Each month (or every two months on a half programme), we supply groups with one of their selected titles. We provide enough copies to enable members of a group to read the same book at the same time.

Each group meets on a regular basis to discuss the book they've read.
