The Big Read, One Book - One Community

ABOUT THE BIG READ

The Big Read is the Library District's annual "one book, one community" celebration to promote reading and literacy. Each April the Library offers a variety of programs to motivate the community to read and discuss issues raised in the books. Programs range from book discussions, movies that support the titles or themes, author visits and activities for young people. The Library works with community partners to enrich the Big Read program and experience.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

  • Businesses, schools and nonprofits: Join the Library to support the Big Read. Contact Kathleen O'Dell, Community Relations Director, 417-616-0564.
  • Readers: Anyone can participate! Get a copy of any of the books in print, audio or electronic format, and start reading. Encourage others to read, discuss the books and their themes and attend the Library Big Read programs in April.
