The Caxton Club welcomes all enthusiastic bibliophiles: collectors, conservators, designers, binders, printers, librarians, editors, booksellers, publishers, and others interested in the book.
The Club meets for a reception, dinner and a guest speaker on the third Wednesday of the month from September through June. On the second Friday of the month from September through June, the Club meets for a buffet luncheon and program. Both meetings are held at the Union League Club, 65 West Jackson Boulevard in Chicago.
The Caxton Club offers Resident, Nonresident, and Junior categories of membership. Nonresident members are those living 50 miles or more from the city of Chicago.

To become a member, the applicant must:
Have an interest in books, including book collecting, the book arts, or literature
Be at least 21 years of age
Have attended two meetings for Resident membership or one meeting for Nonresident membership
