Yes, you read that right. We have a library at NWA WP! While not all the books were purchased outright by us, all are here for the use of anyone and everyone who crosses our doors.
While preparing to write this blog, we noticed some of our favorite volumes from the library at NWA WP have developed legs and walked away, most notably OUTLIERS by Malcolm Gladwell, HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE by Dale Carnegie, and the Stephen Covey classic, 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE. That said, they’re great books, and honestly we aren’t even mad.
OF the volumes that remain, NEVER EAT ALONE is never in the same place twice, meaning someone is picking it up and skimming it on the regular.

Perhaps one of the main benefits of joining a co-working space is the connections you make with other people and ideas. And nothing exposes you to new ideas better than books. Next time you’re in the area, you are invited to pop in, make yourself a coffee, tea, or hot cocoa, and grab a book. We have several cozy places you can sit and read. We’d love to have you here, especially as winter closes in and we hang up the bikes for longer than usual most weeks.
