Mission Statement

The mission of the Jefferson County Community Read program is to provide a forum for bringing our community together through a common book with activities that encourage the full participation of our multicultural community. This is done to promote reading, to foster literacy, to help our residents have a growing understanding of our cultural diversity, and to encourage dialogue among our community members. 

A scrapbook of Community Read activities and events from each year is kept in the Office of the Library Director.
