What references, if any, are there to synagogues or non-temple organized worship in the Old Testamentancient Israel?

Apologies in advance if this is more appropriate in the Christianity stackexchange site.

Synagogue worship appears to be relatively common in the Christian New Testament (although perhaps little is known about what actually went on in the synagogues, I don't know a whole lot of details). But I have heard little to nothing about non-temple worship during the time that the nation of Israel was in the land. Is there anything in the Bible (or perhaps Josephus or other historical sources) to suggest that synagogues existed pre-exile or for long before the NT?

I have also heard that scholars tend to think that synagogues did not start until the diaspora; is there any good evidence of this?
