2019 CLSC Membership


Founded in 1878, the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle is Chautauqua's first arts organization and one of the oldest continuous book discussion groups in the United States.

In order to graduate from the CLSC, members must pay four years of Membership Dues (for the full list of qualifications, visit the CLSC's webpage). 

Your first CLSC dues payment establishes your membership – which entitles you to a 20% discount on all CLSC and CLSC Young Reader books sold in the Chautauqua Bookstore and CLSC Veranda for the year, as well as a 10% discount on all other books in the Bookstore. (Unfortunately, discounts are not currently applied on web purchases.  This should change soon!)  Your dues support the operation of the CLSC, the appearance of the CLSC authors each summer, your recognition, and other CLSC efforts in support of literary inquiry.

While 2019 Memberships are made available in September 2018, 2018 Memberships are still valid for in-store discounts through the end of the year.
