One Book, One City for Kids
January 1 - March 31
One Book, One City for Kids is an annual reading program that encourages all 4th graders in the city to read and discuss the same book. The program also strives to encourage a lifelong love of reading among students, to inspire readers to bring story ideas and themes to life through discussion, and to build collaborative ties between public libraries, school libraries, and area schools. This year the entire city will be reading Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea. In this book, seven 5th graders at Snow Hill School share how their lives are changed for the better by rookie teacher Mr. Terupt.
