Popular reading groups in public libraries, linked to the learning and social inclusion agenda, have expanded to include a wide range of sections in society, including people with visual impairments. This book discusses whether reading is still a visual activity or if technological developments have led to a broadening of its definition. It considers the wide range of reading groups linked to libraries which suggests that libraries understand and are taking the social inclusion agenda seriously. Reading groups can deliver post-compulsory education and lifelong learning. Finally the book outlines ideas for future development and maximising potential for the benefit of both the library and the reading group members.
