Washington, DC Chapter

Book Club

DC/SLA Professional Book Club

Created in 2002, the Chapter’s Professional Book Club meets quarterly to discuss current, thought-provoking books of wide interest to our professional community. The goal of our discussions is to highlight each book’s unique points and useful takeaways through a lively exchange of ideas.

Prior to each meeting, participants nominate recent, compelling books, and vote for the title they would like to discuss at the next gathering. Since 2005, the group has met at diverse Metro-accessible restaurants recommended by participants.

Professional Book Club Chair: Jessica Fomalont

DC/SLA Leisure Book Club

The Leisure Book Club, currently inactive, met monthly to discuss books on a variety of topics. Past choices have included travel, Abraham Lincoln, and librarians as main characters. Participants each read a book of their own choosing on the topic of discussion.

The group met at the Barnes and Noble near Metro Center, and watched the DC/SLA discussion list for exact dates.

Leisure Book Club Chair: vacant
