We believe one thing that sets independent bookstores apart from the rest is our ability to function as community gathering places. We hope The Bookshelf is a place where friends can meet and mingle and discuss the books they love so much, and book clubs are a big part of that. Thomasville is home to a plethora of book clubs, and a few of them meet in our little shop (which we love).

Here's a little list of the clubs that meet in our area. Want to start your own book club, or have a club not listed here? We'd be happy to host your group's meetings. Curious which book group might be the right fit for you? Just contact us for details, and we'll get you plugged in! 

(Are you the host of one of our area book clubs? Make sure we've got your latest selection on our shelves! Email Chris to ensure we've ordered your copies for the shop!)
