Walk and Talk Mobile Book Club

The Helena, Montana public library uses its bookmobile creatively. Yes, there still are bookmobiles. Those print-laden vehicles still wend along with books for people in remote areas. Some of them provide internet access through the bookmobile’s hotspot.

Each year during National Library Week, there is a Bookmobile Day. As of this year, there are 930 of the mobile libraries.

But Helena has a fresh idea—a mobile book club. Each month when the bookmobile makes it scheduled stop at Skelton Park, the Walk and Talk Book Club meets to walk around the park and discuss that month’s selection. The library sets up the discussion questions and provides tea and snacks after the discussion.

What better way to get a bit of low-stress exercise, enjoy talking about an interesting book, and enjoy the company of other readers?

North Georgia has countless places to enjoy a similar experience. No need to wait for your library to organize it, contact a friend or two or three or more and set up a Walk and Talk Book Club of your own. Smoke Signals would like to know how it works.
