For everyone who is starved of intellectual and bookish conversations, those who find solace between the pages of books, and for all the avid bookworms and bibliophiles out there, this one is written and customised specially for you. Whether you wish to get into reading, hope to get out of a stubborn reading slump, or just long to share your love of reading with others, then this article’s going to help you! Whatever your reading goal is, the Bibliothek Book Club could be just the thing for you!

A cultural hub in Arkan, Sheikh Zayed, this place holds many events throughout the year. From poetry nights and art therapy sessions to book signing events and book club meetings, Bibliothek has it all! Their book club meetings take place every month.

During their previous book club meetings, they’ve read and discussed a wide range of books— from TJ Klune’s The House in the Cerulean Sea to Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita. Since Bibliothek holds a diverse array of events (all of which we find pretty therapeutic and informative), you can always go there when you join their book club meetings to spend the whole day away from life’s worries and concerns (and it helps that Bibliothek has a bookstore, gallery, and café; it really does have it all).

To decide on a book, the members of the book club use their WhatsApp group chat to select their monthly read. Sometimes they vote to make the decision, but other times, the moderator of the club chooses the book.

Within this group, the Bibliothek community truly comes alive and fosters. The book club extends beyond just reading books; it becomes about sharing ideas, exploring different perspectives, and connecting with other bibliophiles. Each meeting is a chance to dive deep into literature, uncover hidden meanings, and engage in enriching discussions that transcend boundaries.

More than just book discussions, Bibliothek hosts author visits, giving members the opportunity to meet and interact with writers, ask questions, and gain a deeper understanding of their writing process, inspiring everyone and helping them grasp the makings of becoming a writer.

With all this in mind, if you’re looking to indulge in a literary community, we guarantee this is what you’re looking for!
