Join in the online conversation about books #DERBYSHIRE READS

Readers are being encouraged to share their recommended reads and get more out of their local library with Derbyshire County Council's new online book club. The council's library service suggests a topic for the #DerbyshireReads Facebook group each month and asks members to come up with books on that theme. Since it launched in February themes have included ‘Books successfully adapted to film' and ‘The best twist in a book' which have generated a range of reviews at the end of each month.

Recommended books can be borrowed or ordered from any Derbyshire County Council library and some can be downloaded via its eBook service. Residents can take part in #DerbyshireReads on the county council's libraries Facebook page at  https://www.facebook.com/DerbyshireLibraries They can find out more about the council's Reader Group and Book Chat networks at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/libraries and about eBooks, eMagazines and eAudiobooks at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/ebooks
