Boozy Bookworms, the reading optional book club for librarians!

Yes, you read right- reading optional. Some events will center around a book, but you're still welcome to attend even if you haven't read it. Most of our meetups include 5 minutes of book discussion and 2-3 hours of gabbing about everything from work to the Walking Dead. This group is aimed at getting librarians together for fun and networking. 

We have met all over the DMV, from Kramerbooks to Freddy's Beach Bar. If you have any suggestions for places to meet, please share!

We generally meet twice per month- one meetup centered around a book, the other simply social.

The "boozy" part is optional, of course :).

*Anyone professionally connected to libraries is welcome: librarians, MLS students and grads, research divas, techs, etc.*- charges organizers (me) dues, and it costs over $120/year to keep this group going. Due to countless last minute cancellations and no-shows, I have decided to charge annual dues rather than per meetup to help cover the costs. Members will have 2 weeks to pay the $3 or be automatically removed from the group.

Please email me if you have any questions! I look forward to meeting everyone soon :)
