The Reading Room
The Reading Room is a new collaborative project where people can read, learn, listen, and share ideas.
Through linking up with other spaces across the country, we’ve created libraries stocked with thought provoking books, where reading groups and opportunities to meet authors are being established, providing resources and activities that hope to catalyse creativity, collaboration and conversation.
