Trying to give a group access to read document libraries but add/edit lists. Tried creating a custom permissions level for this but would only allow one or the other. How can I make this work?

Break List inheritance, make 2 custom permissions level, one for Item level permissions and one for list level. For item level add read permissions only but for List level select add/edit permissions.

add users to both groups or however you want it :)
