Franklin County, MO, USA (Union Library)
Silent Book Club is a nontraditional book club: bring your own book, read in companionable silence, and then socialize afterwards with fellow readers. You'll carve out time for reading, meet new people, and hopefully leave with some new recommendations.

The Franklin County, MO chapter of Silent Book Club will meet the fourth Wednesday of each month. The first 45 minutes will be spent silently reading, and the last 45 minutes will be dedicated to socializing, browsing for our next reads in the library, or continuing to read silently.

Feel free to bring your own (nonalcoholic) beverage, a snack, & a friend. However, since this is a book club for adults (18+), we kindly ask that you leave the kiddos at home.

Joplin, MO

Silent Book Club is happy hour for introverts. Bring a book, bring a friend, and order a drink. Then settle in for an hour of quiet reading with fellow book lovers. Meetups will consist of approximately 30 minutes of socializing and then one hour of silent reading. Everyone brings their own book. Afterwards we will have another 30 minutes of socializing (or you can keep reading if you'd rather).

There's no assigned reading or discussion guides—that's the "silent" part of our book club—but we do like to share book recommendations and meet like-minded readers. While some silent reading parties have a strict No Talking! rule, no one will be shushed or shamed at Silent Book Club.

At SBC, you can read in companionable silence with a friend, interlace gossip with recommended authors, and never worry if you haven't finished the book.

Meetups are once a month and will take place at various coffee shops, cafes, or parks around the Joplin area. All readers are welcome—even e-readers!
