Interact with other humans and talk about books you’re reading at our virtual Roundtable

One of Elkhart Public Library’s most popular afternoon programs is coming to your home. 

Reading Roundtable, normally a once-a-month gathering at our Cleveland branch, is moving to Zoom on Monday, April 20. The video conference will begin at 1:30 p.m., and keep reading to find the link to join.

Roundtable was created in 2018 by branch supervisor Mary Ann Kempa as a way to bring readers together. But this is no book club – instead of one assigned reading, participants simply talk about the titles they’ve been reading. 

The goal is to spark questions, start discussions, and maybe even help you find a great read you weren’t expecting, Kempa says. 

“These casual conversations have created friendships and encouraged readers to think more broadly about what they pick up to enjoy,” she says. “I wasn’t sure what to expect when Roundtable started – you always wonder whether people will want to come and talk. It’s been a very positive experience and we’ve been going strong.

“With people staying at home, this virtual Roundtable gives us a chance to invite more people into the discussion.” 

If you have Zoom loaded and ready to go, click here. We also have a call in option, if you’d like to listen to the discussion – just contact us and we’ll get you set up. 

Reading Roundtable, in person and like all our other book discussions, will return to the Cleveland branch when the library is able to restart programming following this public health crisis.
