Books make great friends

There are two book clubs in South Petherton, The Afternoon Book Club and The Evening Book Club.

Due to COVID-19, members now meet via Zoom, a convivial way to stay in touch from the comfort of your own home. And, for the duration, the Evening Book Club also meets on an afternoon.


While the Library Book Group Service is suspended, members are asked to source their own books. 


If you'd like to join either of these clubs, please get in touch with Mark Freeman at
