Holiday Party and Book Exchange!

  • 4h ago · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Since December we might be spending more time rockin' around the Christmas tree or singing some Chanukah songs- let's give ourselves a one month break and have a holiday party! 

I have booked the party room at my apartment, so we will have plenty of room for food, games, socializing, fun, and a book exchange! I will be providing appetizers, and desserts, but I do ask for a 5 dollar donation to help cover the cost of the room. 

For the book exchange- please bring a wrapped new or lightly used book! It could be something you've already read and loved, or something you really want to read! We will exchange books white elephant style- and then when everyone unwraps the book, we will let the gift giver say a few sentences about the book and whether or not the have read it- or why they want to read it! When all the books have been unwrapped, we will choose a book for our January meeting! If you have any questions- please let me know! 

Also, start thinking about monthly book themes you would like to see in the next year. We have had a couple suggestions like Romance, Black History month, and banned books- but in hopes of getting the absolute coolest themes out there- bring suggestions and we can chose what themes we want for Febuary-March-April!

Finally, I had originally made this a potluck- but upon further reflection, I decided that a potluck and book exchange for a Friday night is a bit much. So, I will provide the food so that you can focus on choosing a book! That being said, if you would like to bring a dish to share (or drinks) please do! 

If you are a new face- please feel free to join us and participate in the book exchange! We will be getting a lot of the seasoned members to join us- and we all love love love new faces! If you have any hesitations- feel free to message me, and I will help appease them. 

I can't wait to see you all! I hope you are ready to Par-Tay like the coolest book worms around! If you have any questions, please let me know!

    Hey Abby. When I try to google map your apartment, it's not finding 1500 Lakewood Ave in Turlock; it's coming up as Modesto. Can you clarify your address? Thanks, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!

    Hey all, I think I had said I was going to rent the common room at the apartment complex, BUT, my request got change of plans- we are going to be nice and cozy in my apartment- I have a chair for everyone! My apartment number 180, but funny enough, on the second floor! When you drive in, the apartment is on the left side, right across from the "future resident" parking. Can't wait to see you all!!!!
