Keep Reading, Stay Connected 

Written by Rachael Norris, 2nd April 2020

Now, more than ever, we need the connection that Shared Reading brings. And while the current circumstances may have prompted a pause in our regular, face-to-face Shared Reading groups and activities, it isn’t stopping us from finding other ways to connect with literature and our wonderful community of Readers 

Whether you’re an existing group member and / or volunteer, a Reader Friend, customer, or completely new to The Reader community, here are just some of the ways you can keep reading and stay connected with us over the coming weeks: 

  • Get your Shared Reading fix over the phone – call 0151 729 2250for details. 
  • Follow @thereaderorg onFacebook and Twitterfor recommended poems and reads, and daily readings delivered by video.
  • Join in live Shared Reading events on Facebook Live every week – find details here. 
  • Take part in an online Shared Reading group via Zoom – email or call 0151 729 2250 for more information.  

We’re also running online support workshops for our brilliant Reader Leader volunteers – head over to the Shared Reading community hub for more details about those. 

To stay connected with our plans to keep reading in the weeks ahead, call us on the number above or follow us on social media, we’d love to hear from you.
