We are a nation of storytellers and we all love a good story. Stories are how we make sense of the world and learn about each other and indeed find out who we are as individuals. You don’t have to be a reader to join in, just come and listen and let us know your thoughts on the stories we will introduce you to. There are three open Reading Rooms for older people on our Reading Rooms Mobile. If you love stories come and join in the conversations.
