Staff Book Club

The Occupational Health Department have set up a regular book club for staff, reading and discussing a variety of books.  The book club is open to all staff and meets every 4-6 weeks, and is currently held online to allow for everyone to join whether on campus or at home.  

It was suggested by a member of Book Club that it might be nice to partner with a local independent book shop.  Read in Holmfirth would love to be involved in our Book Club and have recommended several books and are hoping to be involved in other ways in the future.  Read are offering a discount in store, or Free Delivery if you order books to come to your door.  If anyone is interested in purchasing via Read their website link is here: Welcome to Read Holmfirth - Read Bookshop - Holmfirth 

You are welcome to source Book Club books from your local library, any online shop, kindle, audible or supplier of your choice.  If anyone is interested in purchasing via Read their website link is here: Welcome to Read Holmfirth - Read Bookshop - Holmfirth (
