Reading Together Survey

Reading Together

What if the entire community read the same book at the same time? This year, we feature TWO different titles written by TWO different authors. The theme, in a word, is FOOD.

That’s a Wrap!

Several weeks have passed since Novella Carpenter was in town as the final event of Reading Together 2014. During that time, we have been busy collecting statistics, photos, and feedback about this year’s program.

For instance, did you know:

  • The two titles circulated more than 3,500 times since they were announced late last summer
  • Reading Together brought more than 1,600 people out into the community between early March and mid-April to talk about Farm City and The American Way of Eating
  • 100%  of survey respondents believe that Reading Together is valuable for our community

Of course, we’ve always believed that last point to be true, but these results affirm it. And it won’t be long before we start the process all over again to select a title (or titles?) for Reading Together 2015. Have a suggestion? Use the Contact link to the right and let us know!

Until next year,

Karen
