New reading group for deaf and hearing impaired

New reading group for deaf and hearing impaired


Worthing Central Library launches a new reading group for deaf and hearing impaired people today. The book club, which will discuss a number of top-selling titles, meets at the library on the third Tuesday of every month.

Its first session starts at 5.30pm on September 17th.

Lionel Barnard, County Council Cabinet Member for Residents Services, said: “Reading groups are a great way of meeting likeminded people to share an enthusiasm and love of books.

“Those with hearing impairments have often told me they struggle in mixed groups because they miss much of the discussion.

“However, these sessions are led by a host with a hearing impairment who has an excellent understanding of the difficulties faced by deaf people.”

Spaces in the reading group are limited to minimise its size.

The sessions are being held in Worthing Library’s newly-refurbished lecture theatre.
