SHELBY- The Vault Wine Bar and Marvin Memorial Library are joining together to present a new kind of book club, 'The Book Vault', which will be opened to the entire community.Co-owner of The Vault, Cindy Lash explained the initial idea for the book club came from Marvin Memorial."The library came to me with the idea, which I thought was great," Lash stated.Laura Ritchie, circulation with Marvin Memorial, explained she attended a conference with other libraries and they discussed how they had met at wineries to talk about different books."I immediately thought of The Vault and thought that would be the perfect place to have this gathering," Ritchie expressed.'The Book Vault' is designed for those who are lovers of wine, books, and lively conversations."The Vault was totally on board with it and we are both excited to see how this goes," Ritchie said.Ritchie shared 'The Book Vault' is planning on meeting the second Tuesday every other month. The first meeting is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, October 13 at 6 p.m.Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite books to engage in conversation.Ritchie explained more details on the group would be worked out after the first meeting."We may pick out a book for the group to read or we may go with a specific author to focus on. We aren't sure what we are going to do just yet, but we will make more decisions after the first meeting to get an idea of what people would like," Ritchie stated.Lash explained how she believes the community will respond to this new club."Since we (The Vault) have opened, we have noticed that people love something new and different to do and we have been expanding our events. Our monthly art classes are very popular and I'm hoping that we have a great response from the community on this event also," Lash stated.Ritchie shared the purpose of 'The Book Vault' is to encourage reading."We want to encourage people to share their love of reading and to try new things that are outside of their comfort zone," Ritchie stated.Food and drink can be purchased at the participant's own expense.
