If you love to read and would like to discuss great reads with other book lovers come and join one of our book groups. 

Our book groups meet monthly at all the Puke Ariki libraries. We have book sets that we loan out to the groups for reading and discussion. Book groups are a great way to meet new people and enjoy a chat in a relaxed, friendly environment.
