The Reading Room CLE
The Reading Room CLE is committed to advancing equity in Greater Cleveland by improving our community's access to opportunity and information, transforming our society to combat the long-term effects of segregation.
Where is our store?
We are one bookstore for that one city, so instead of running a neighborhood-focused storefront, we show up at events, pop-ups, and programs all over Greater Cleveland. We've hosted book launches, spoken word performances, meetups and creative activities, collaborating with our community partners. If you produce shows, write books, or host parties, and want to do a project together, let us know!
If there's no store, how do I shop?
Thanks for asking! Book sales are one of our main sources of income and we'd love to be your go-to. We sell used books on all of the major online marketplaces; check out our Biblio storefront to browse. For merch or Sunshine Mail, take a look on the General Store. For new books, we get a percentage of all sales that are placed through our Bookshop page!
Come to an event! We'd love to get to know you. For the duration of Ohio's social distancing, our events are online; RSVP via Eventbrite and you'll get the Jitsi call-in information. You can also signal boost our social media, or write a guest entry for our recurring blog feature, Reader Advisory.
