About One Book, One Village

One Book, One Village programs are a way to encourage the community to come together by reading the same book at the same time and share experiences via related programs and discussions. With this program, MGPL hopes to deepen an appreciation of reading, promote the sharing of ideas, and build a stronger sense of community.
