Stay Connected: Start a Senior Book Club-55+Communities
One way for seniors to stay connected and keep their minds sharp is to start a book club. Even thought there are many book clubs already started, if you don’t see one that fits your tastes or works with your new schedule then start one.
How to start a senior book club:
- Recruit members by asking friends, family, or by putting up fliers in your local gym, bookstore, senior center, or community center.
- Pick a meeting place. This can be anywhere from a local library, senior center, or community center.
- Create a scheduled meeting time. Make sure the location, time, and date are consistent. Make sure members know to schedule their time around the book club meetings.
- Decide on what books will be read. Having members put out ideas for titles, genres, length and then having everyone vote can do this.
- Regulate meetings. Create positions for members so duties can be dealt out fairly and rotate them if everyone is willing to contribute.
- Prepare book discussions. Search online for guides on discussing the chosen books or at least helpful topics to get the ball rolling.
Creating and maintain a senior book club can become a very involved task. Make sure you have the time to take this on. This is another reason, once you have a good amount of members, to give positions and duties. Just remember, everyone else in the group is likely retired and looking for a fun new activity. Enjoy it!
