“Millennials Ruin Book Club” is a new program being hosted by the Mandel Public Library that begins Wednesday, Jan. 16 at 6:30 p.m., at Subculture Coffee in downtown West Palm Beach.

In this new book club, created by millennials for millennials, there is no assigned book to read. According to the organizers of the group not having assigned reading is ideal for young working adults because they are busier than ever and might not have time to commit to reading a book a month, or want to read a book that doesn’t interest them.

With “Millennials Ruin Book Club,” participants can just share what they are reading or watching with like-minded individuals, and also get recommendations from other readers and librarians, enjoying the benefits of a traditional book club but in a more relaxed setting. So, don’t worry the book club is not really being “ruined,” it’s just being reinvented.

Why Millennials?

According to Pew Research Center, millennials are the most likely generation of Americans to use public libraries, with 53% of millennials saying they used a library or bookmobile in the previous 12 months, as of fall 2016.  The Center identifies millennials as anyone born between 1981 and 1996, making them ages 22 to 37 in 2018. This goes against most people’s assumptions about Millennials who, most people think don’t read. That actually isn’t the case, they just read using a variety of different mediums. Paperback books may not be as popular as they used to be, but reading itself is as popular as ever.
