2016 One City One Book

OCOB logo crop hi resOne City One Book is a “citywide book club” that encourages the community to read the selection and participate in a series of events that celebrate the book. The annual choice is announced in the summer and community events are planned for the fall giving the community time to read and enjoy the book. Now in its tenth year, One City One Book is presented by the Walnut Creek Library Foundation and Contra Costa County Library.

Check back in late July for 2016 One City One Book selection and programs!
