With the purpose of connecting patrons to more books and to each other, we created a casual book club – all the inspiration without the assigned homework. This monthly program that started in December pops up at different local establishments that ‘brew’ to discuss books we have read or are excited to read. Our sites include ACOCA Coffee, McFleshman’s Brewery, Lawlss Coffee, and Stone Arch Brewpub. Business owners have been incredibly welcoming, and attendees have been excited to visit new-to-them spaces, meet new people, and be inspired with a great list of books to add to their TBR (to-be-read) pile! Friends’ funds support light refreshments from the small business offering space for the program.
