READS Roundtables Spring 2017

Thank you to all who planned, contributed to, and attended the READS Roundtables this year! This year’s theme was “Programming around Books”. We talked all things book group, exchanged suggestions for community reads and outreach events, and compiled lists of things that really worked in our individual libraries.

Here are links to :

Save the date! The READS Fall Conference is October 10, 2017 at the McLane Center in Concord.

READS Roundtables Pre-Reading List

We’ll be talking about all things book group. Community reads, cookbook clubs, the mechanics of book discussions, title selection, involving community groups, using graphic novels or audio and digital titles, increasing community awareness of book group options, bringing in local authors – the list goes on and on. But we need YOU and your curiosity or expertise to make the discussion work.

Here’s an annotated reading list of topics and ideas to start the discussion from the READS programming committee. READS Roundtable Prereading List annotated
