HILLINGDON libraries are launching a digital-only reading club this month for those who cannot physically attend a reading group to share their thoughts on books and socialise.

Bookworms Online, run in association with the free library app BorrowBox, will hold its first session on Thursday, January 16.

The monthly virtual book club will encourage residents to borrow or download books in advance of the scheduled social media discussion, which will take place on Twitter from 6- 7pm on the third Thursday of each month.

The first book for discussion is Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig and the discussion will be led by a library employee on Twitter via @Hill_libraries using the hashtag #BookwormsOnline.

After 7pm, readers can continue the conversation on the Hillingdon Libraries Facebook page using the hashtag #BookwormsOnline.

To join Bookworms Online, readers need to be a Hillingdon Library member, so they can read the book and/or download it from BorrowBox.

Readers also need to have a social media account to join the conversation on Twitter and become friends with Hillingdon Libraries on Facebook.
