shelby county reads

Shelby County Reads is our One-Community, One-Read program. Each year a committee meets to choose a book title for the community to read and to develop programming that enhances the theme of the book. Titles for our younger readers are also selected that relate to the main book. The library is proud to have representatives that serve on the committee and to support the programming.
