Shared Reading Groups

Shared reading is a new style of therapeutic reading group. The groups are relaxed and friendly. Books and poetry are read aloud with breaks for discussion and reminiscence generated by the text. It has long been regarded that reading aloud and being read to is good for you. Now, there is evidence that it can alleviate the symptoms of mild depression and improve well being.

Torfaen Libraries run Shared Reading Groups throughout the borough in our libraries and in locations in the community.
