The One Read reading panel narrowed the list of more than 115 book suggestions for the 2016 program to two top contenders. Between now and April 29, cast your vote for either “Bettyville” by George Hodgman or “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet” by Jamie Ford.
Election season will soon be upon us! No, not the presidential election, but your chance to choose between the two finalist titles for One Read 2016. Our reading panel is hard at work, making their way through this year’s nominated books to choose two to present to the public for a vote. Starting April 11, you will be able to vote here at oneread.org, at any library branch or on the bookmobile. So sharpen your pencils and charge your devices, and thank you for your support of your community-wide reading program!
New to the One Read program or just want to learn more about how the books are chosen and programs planned? Join us at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute on Friday, February 5, 11:15 a.m.-12:45 p.m., to learn more.

At this special free brown-bag seminar, librarian Lauren Williams will talk about this community-wide reading program. Learn about One Read‘s 15-year history, past book selections and how community members can get involved. Feel free to bring your lunch.
