One Book, One City for Kids is an annual reading program that encourages all 5th 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 Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan.
Children in kindergarten through third grade are invited to read along with the Mayor. A new book is featured each month.
