The Village Read

Great books bring people together! Join us this summer for the third annual Village Read and help foster that community spirit.

The Library is encouraging the entire village to read, discuss, or explore Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. We will have programs, activities, and a book discussion. To help as many people as possible get their hands on Pride and Prejudice, we are giving away free paperback copies at the Library (while supplies last).

After getting your copy of the book, be sure to join us for these related events! Registration is required for all programs unless otherwise noted.
