2010 Community Read Books United We Read Boone County logo

The Lebanon Public Library is cooperating with the Thorntown and Zionsville Public Libraries to offer adult readers the 2nd Annual United We Read Boone County community reading program. For families and young readers, the Children's Department presents "Wee Read Together". This fall's selections are:

Children's Picture Book: Miss Malarkey Leaves No Reader Behind by Judy Finchler
Children's Chapter Book: Schooled by Gordon Korman
Adult Book: The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent
Audio/Visual Audiobook: The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent

The Community Read Program promotes literacy and community by bringing together readers throughout Lebanon and Boone County to read and discuss selected books. Books are selected for each age group. All you have to do to participate is stop by the library, borrow a copy of the book for your reading level, read it, and get your name entered in a drawing to win a prize! It's just that easy!
