Happy New Year!
Welcome to the Cook Public Library One Book One Community blog.
From January 3 to March 7, community members are invited to read The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
The librarian will be reading The Count of Monte Cristo for the first time. A summary of her book progress and an update about the program will be posted once a week.
The book was one of the 100 books listed on PBS's The Great American Read. The Cook Pubic Library received a grant from PBS and the American Library Association to promote The Great American Read and all of the books on the list. The library held voting contests between books all summer long. After many votes and much competition, The Count of Monte Cristo was chosen as our winner.
Join us at the library on Thursday, January 3 at 5:00 pm to check out a copy of the book or learn how you can download the book to your computer or device.
Light snacks will be served courtesy of The Great American Read grant and The Friends of the Cook Public Library.
