Council Bluffs, Iowa, USA (PACE)

Council Bluffs, Iowa, USA (PACE)
Pottawattamie Arts, Culture and Entertainment (PACE) is strengthening, developing and promoting arts, cultural and historical institutions and organizations, and activities in Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie County and throughout Southwest Iowa.

Are you a book lover looking for a quiet and cozy place to read? Or perhaps, you're someone who's been meaning to read more but just can't seem to find the time? Look no further because we have just the thing for you! Members of the Council Bluffs Public Library will also be on-site for library card registrations.
What is a Silent Book Club, you might ask? It's a gathering of bookworms who come together to read, share book recommendations, and enjoy each other's company - all in comfortable silence. You bring your own book, grab a drink, find a cozy spot, and settle in for an hour of uninterrupted reading.

There's no assigned book to read, no pressure to finish a certain number of pages, and no judgement for falling asleep with your book on your face. It's a guilt-free space to indulge in your love for reading and to connect with like-minded individuals. Join us!

Waverly, Iowa

Waverly, Iowa
Welcome to Waverly SBC! We are all about connecting but also enjoying the peace and comfort quietly reading a book in community brings. All readers 16+ are welcome to bring a book of their choice, enjoy some snacks and a drink, and grab a seat to enjoy our Silent Book Club gatherings. We spend 30 minutes before and after our hour long reading time socializing and meeting new people, (if you choose) snacking, and enjoying fellowship with other readers.

We hope with us you find a safe and calm space to enjoy a book and meet other readers. The atmosphere at Get Roasted Coffee shop is incredible and we feel confident is the perfect fit for our group. They are opening after hours specifically for our book club and we hope you choose to support their local business by purchasing a food item and/or a drink. Thank you for checking out our chapter and we hope to catch you at our next gathering!
