GR Reads 2015

Summer Reading All Grown Up

June 1 – August 31, 2015  |  All Library Locations

Conjunction Junction, what’s your function? Connecting up words and phrases and clauses. —Schoolhouse Rock, music and lyrics by Bob Dorough

What brings all of our GR Reads books together this year? Click—a connection. Our ten books examine bonds—between families, neighbors, co-workers, pets, events and places. Sometimes these connections are sought out, other times unforeseen. In the end, they all make for a great story. The 33 programs related to the books are meant to link us together and our 27 community partners are on hand to make sure we have a great time doing it. So climb aboard the GR Reads Express, find a comfy spot and start reading. Your connection is right down the track.
