The Doncaster Read The Doncaster Read

Every two months we invite you to read and review the Doncaster Read. 

Following our launch of the Doncaster Read in May 2014 we have featured many different authors, genres and series of books to promote reading for pleasure. Our first Doncaster Read was Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks to mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War. We have since featured authors to coincide with the publication of a new book or film adaptation of a book. At other times our display features a selection of books by different authors on the same theme. The Doncaster Read display provides a focus to try a book you may not normally pick from the shelves.

We hope you will enjoy our selection and start talking about books you have read through the ‘Doncaster Read'. We’d like to hear what you think about the books and authors we’ve chosen and let other readers know what you think about the book. To get involved you can loan or reserve the chosen ‘Doncaster Read' from your library and there may also be e-books available online.

Introducing our September & October
Doncaster Read


National Poetry Day 25th-anniversary celebration


National Poetry Day on 3rd October is a day to celebrate poetry throughout the UK. This year is its 25th Anniversary and we thought it important to mark it with our Doncaster Read. Every year, a different theme is chosen and this year it is Truth.

There are always special events held to mark the day in schools, bookshops and, of course, libraries. We will be celebrating National Poetry Day with an event in Doncaster Central Library to share our love of poetry and stories.

Books & Beverages, will be a social evening to sit back, listen and chat about the poems and stories chosen for the evening.

However, if you can’t join us and would like to celebrate National Poetry Day at home, why not browse our Doncaster Read selection?

Celebrate with a sonnet!
