Book Club

Event Details

Want to carve out time to read but don't want the pressure to finish and discuss a specific book?  Want to learn what others are reading and low-key socialize? It sounds to us like you may be a Bookalo.

The Gathering of the Bookalos is an off-site BYOBook Silent Book Club. There is no assigned reading, you just bring whatever book in whatever format you'd like and read it quietly alongside others who are doing the same thing. That's it. It's a time dedicated to quiet reading, learning about what others are reading, and hanging out with folks out in the community.

Here's an idea of what The Gathering will look like:

2:00: Meet at The Railyard Cafe, grab a beverage or snack, settle in

2:15: We'll share out what we're reading

2:30 - 3:30: Read quietly

Registration is highly recommended, as seating is limited.

We look forward to gathering and no pressure reading with you, fellow Bookalos. 

A few other notes to consider:

There is a free parking lot at the location.

We will have the ability to create library cards and will have a few library books on hand that will be available for checkout.

The event is taking place at a cafe that will be open to the public. We cannot guarantee a perfectly quiet or silent environment.
