What would happen if everyone in Chelmsford read the same book at the same time!
To cultivate a love of reading and to promote a sense of community, the Chelmsford Library is organizing its first Community Book Read -- "One Book One Town!" Everyone in Chelmsford will be invited to read the same book at the same time. Communities all over the country sponsor similar programs (see books other communities have read) and find it to be a way for people of all ages to come together to share thoughts, friendship and a lively exchange of ideas.
We first need to choose that one important book that everyone will read.
What book would you choose for a Community Read? Use the form below to complete and submit your ballot. The ideal book will be one with general appeal, and is appropriate for teenagers and up.
Nominations will be gathered throughout the summer and fall. On Election Day in November, the people of Chelmsford will vote for their favorite from a ballot of the most popular nominations. The top vote-getter will be the One Book we'll read.
