One book,

one community,

one great opportunity to come together as Jefferson County readers.

What could be better than joining readers around the county in one big community read?

Jefferson County Reads, an initiative by area libraries and educational centers, fosters comradery and conversation.

From March until June, participants are encouraged to enjoy this year's book choice, Agatha Christie's classic "And Then There Were None". Then, choose one of five discussion group dates to get together with others around Jefferson County and talk about what you've read!

You can find the ebook or audiobook on Hoopla, or, check with your local library for a paper copy.

Stay tuned for more activities, and don't forget to post a picture of yourself reading with our hashtag, #JeffersonCountyReads. We can't wait to see the initiative in action!
