The Great American Read

PBS is currently running a series on Tuesday nights entitled, “The Great American Read.”  Leaders in entertainment, politics and education are reviewing the top 100 most popular books in America and they’re slowly counting down to America’s number one favorite book.  You can vote for your favorite by clicking here!  Our staff checked the list against our current inventory, and while we have a majority of the titles, do have a few holes in the list!

Here’s where Elmwood Library needs your help.  Check your books at home.  Do you have one of the following titles in GOOD to LIKE NEW condition and are you willing to donate it to the library?  Or, if you are so inclined, could you purchase the title from a bookstore and gift it to the library?  We would be VERY grateful!  Help us participate in “The Great American Read!”
