Community Read Program logo

Community Read

For a long time, the Library was happy to showcase an different author and one of their books twice a year with events centered around the book, themes from it, or events it mentions.  The Library was able to provide copies of the book for free to the community.  The Community Reads each ended with a visit from the Author who presented to those who attended.  The program is currently not running.
