Well….. following our January hiatus, we are open again! In February, winter can seem endless; so stop by and see us, and we will “weather” together and help you find wonderful books to escape into on these snowy, blustery days.
Our store window in February will spotlight the important work done by Seeds of Literacy to address adult literacy in Cleveland. Appletree will be collecting donations for Seeds of Literacy all month. Join us for a reception on February 9th to help us celebrate the work this organization does in our community.

Book Groups are a great way to read good books, learn about new authors, and meet new friends! Appletree Books hosts several Book Groups throughout the year. Led by knowledgeable facilitators, our groups are designed to introduce you to great books in an informal setting that is fun and informative.
Groups typically meet for 60-90 minutes once a month. The books we will be discussing are announced in advance. We meet in the store or at another location in the Cedar Fairmount neighborhood.
