Our libraries are packed with great reads, including the latest bestsellers, prize winners and old favourites. We’re happy to recommend you something and can help you to request titles from our catalogue.
If you prefer eBooks, we offer a large selection. These are available for free and can be downloaded straight to your device at home. We also offer reading material in other formats, such as AudioBooks on MP3 disc, CD or cassette. Further information is available on our eBooks and eAudiobooks page.
Our eMagazine service is extremely popular. We have over 150 free titles for you to choose from. Each edition you download is yours to keep forever, with no return date or overdue charges.
We support nearly 100 reading groups across Staffordshire. They’re all free to join and most of them meet once a month. By joining a reading group near you, you can make friends and enjoy trying books that you wouldn't normally pick up. Your library can tell you if there is a group near you, or give you advice on setting one up. The Reading Agency Reading Group Database lists more groups in your area, or you could also think about joining an online reading group.
If you run a reading group, or are thinking of starting one, we can supply Reading Group Sets (332 KB) for a group. Take a look and see if there's something that takes your fancy. New sets are added regularly.
