Reading Partners, the national consortium of libraries and publishers led by The Reading Agency began as a pilot with five publishers in 2004. The scheme brings together 40 leading publishers and the entire UK public library network. This is underpinned by a strategic partnership with the Publishers Association.
Reading Partners is now celebrating 11 years of outstanding achievements and the story so far can be seen on The Reading Agency website.
Reading Partners continues to bring established and new writers to the region and to support public libraries work around building new audiences for books and reading.
