2226559037 cca156c664 b

Transform your library's basement into a nocturnal reading room which hosts book-related social activities as well as performances, readings, and poetry slams.


  1. Find basement space in the library.
  2. Create space for patrons to read during later hours using cozy chairs and tables with reading lamps or even bean bags. The goal is to create a tavern like atmosphere in terms of mood and still an inviting atmosphere for reading and convening.
  3. Concoct an activities list which can add variation to the use of your reading tavern. Examples of activities include poetry slams, book readings, dramatic performances, etc.
