The Story of Third Place

Sociologist Ray Oldenburg's book The Great Good Place suggests that to lead a rewarding life, each of us needs three places. First is the home. Second is the workplace or school. Beyond lies the place where people from all walks of life and social levels interact, experiencing and celebrating their commonality as well as their diversity. It is a third place.

Welcome to Ravenna Third Place - the deliberate and intentional creation of a community of booklovers. A fun and comfortable place to browse, linger, lounge, relax, read, eat, laugh, play, talk, listen and just watch the world go by.

We invite you to make Ravenna Third Place your third place.
