The idea behind the One Book philosophy is simple. One Book fosters a community to come together through shared experiences and to grow and to learn from literature. Middle Country stands behind this philosophy with Middle Country Reads, an initiative sponsored by the Middle Country Public Library and Middle Country School District.

Middle Country Public Library will have several events at the library for the community that will emphasize key concepts in the “One Book” such as book discussions, programs, and author events. Schools in the community will also be involved with Middle Country Reads. High School students will explore issues related to the book in their English Language Arts classes as well as focusing on issues related to character building and personal responsibility.

Anyone who wishes to be part of the One Book philosophy with Middle Country Reads can sign a pledge online by clicking the "Pledge" box, or by visiting the Middle Country Public Library.
