About Howard County Reads

 

To cultivate a love of reading and to promote a sense of community, the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library (KHCPL) and the Greentown Public Library are working together again to create “HOWARD COUNTY READS 2015”.

 

Each year KHCPL and the Greentown Public Library work together to sponsor Howard County Reads. Members of the public nominate their favorite books. A committee of librarians and community volunteers evaluates each title and narrows the list to the top 15 books that are well-written, character-driven, not too long, interesting for a wide variety of readers (from high school students to senior citizens) and available in paperback. Then the committee chooses one title from the top 15 to be named the Howard County Reads book for the year.

 

In 1998, the Washington Center for the Book introduced the concept of “One Book” projects across the U.S.A. and around the world. Since 2004, thousands of people have participated in Howard County Reads, the annual community-wide reading program sponsored by the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library and Greentown Public Library.

 


Book nominations are now closed!

A committee consisting of community members and library employees will now start working on narrowing down the selections. They will be looking for books that are well-written, character-driven, not too long, interesting for a wide range of readers (from high school students to senior citizens), and be available in paperback.

 

If you are interested in being a part of the committee that narrows down the list, please contact Trisha Shively at 457.3242 or Margi Bontrager at 628.3534.
