Community Read

Read together. Come together.

Coming in October 2016.

When we read, we learn new things. And when we read together, we learn things not just about the book, but also about the people with whom we are reading.

In October 2016, the library will once again host its annual Community Read, in which a specially selected title will be read and discussed by hundreds in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community. The themes of this book will become the focus of events and activities taking place throughout the month. Companion books for younger readers will also be chosen so that all ages will be able to join in. 

We invite you to engage in this year's Community Read by reading (or listening to) the book, talking about it, attending Library programs, engaging with the Library on social media, and sharing your enthusiasm for reading.

Stay tuned for an announcement of the selected Community Read selections in late summer 2016.
