OneBook, OneLakeville promotes community discussion, family reading, literacy, understanding, and community interaction by reading one book. Local libraries have the capacity to bridge–to bring together different types of people who may not share common experiences otherwise. We hope you join us as we seek to bring the Lakeville community together for these common goals.
