What is a Community Read?
A Community Read promotes literacy while engaging a local community in a common reading experience. When we read, we learn new things. And when we read together, we learn things not only about the book but also about the world and people involved in our reading. We make better collaborators and problem solvers because we understand our world just a little bit better. We become a community of engaged, educated, and empathetic individuals. When we read together, we become part of something bigger than ourselves. So join Jefferson County this fall and be a part of your Community Read.
