The idea of an entire community reading the same book originated in 1998 at the Seattle Public Library. The past two years Hibbing has participated in the Iron Range Reads projects along with the Minnesota Discovery Center.
This year Hibbing, Cloquet, and Duluth Public Libraries will be sponsoring "One Book, One Community", in April. The book will be Barabara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. The library is currently planning programs that will enhance the reading of this title. If you have suggestions or want to present a program or have a discussion group at the library during the month of April, please let us know.
More details and program listings will be available soon!
