As your local, independent, family-owned bookstore, we strive to be a gathering place for the community. We bring in authors for readings, discussions, and signings. We work to schedule local experts to speak at the store on many topics and to provide books to further enhance your knowledge on the topics. We also conduct book group meetings, storytime, and read-alongs for our customers to help them meet others with similar interests, to spice up their reading life, and to sharpen their communication skills.
At Gathering Volumes we conduct three Story Times each week in order to accomodate busy schedules. Children of all ages are welcome at any story time. We choose the first story that is read and then the children get to choose the remaining stories. We find that the children love to pick a book to be read to them!
Gathering Volumes hosts authors for book signings and book release parties. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Gathering Volume's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Gathering Volumes events unless otherwise noted.
