Tucked into a quiet neighborhood a few blocks from Sonoma State University, you might never know an unassuming home holds a treasure trove of books and reference material. The Sitting Room is a reading room and community library with a focus on women’s issues and achievements.
Most of the books are by women authors, there’s a section of sitting room workshop writers, other local authors, a whole Woolf wall. (Virginia, that is.) There’s a fiction section, art, a whole poetry room(!), history, a shelf of cookbooks and more. A fantastic assortment in a lovely setting.
The Sitting Room also hosts events and workshops. I may have heard of it somewhere along the way, but had never been until a Co-op member held a book release and reading there.
