Community Reads 2021

Library Fest is kicking off with amazing community reads for all ages!  These books were chosen to give our community the opportunity to share the experience of reading a story, then engaging with the author and our neighbors. By reading a common story, we can learn from each other’s perspectives and share our own diverse experiences. Stay tuned all week long as we deep dive into cultural themes centered in these works!
