BLOOMSBURG READS Between the World and Me

by Ta-Nehisi Coates

What if hundreds of people in the Bloomsburg community read the same book about race in America and came together to talk?

What would we learn?   How would it change us?btwm_cover_small

We welcome individuals, groups, and book clubs to read Between the World and Me and meet on January 28, 2-4pm,  for a moderated discussion and then small-group talk.

We hope to create a sense of community around a shared experience of reading and discussion.

This is a cooperative program with the Coalition for Social Equity.

We will post links and more information on the BLOOMSBURG READS tab (above, right) on this website. #BloomReads




On the second Tuesday of each month, our Book Buddies meet to help anyone who needs read-aloud practice. Each Buddy is a certified therapy dog and has passed Canine Good Citizen training. Even better–they love to listen and they NEVER criticize. Bring your own book or borrow some of ours. Book Buddies will be ready to go at 6:00 PM.





Everything is awesome at LEGO Night! Stop by the second Thursday of every month from 6 to 7:00 p.m. Fun for the entire family, master builders to beginners. All welcome to join the fun!
