Great American Read

Manlius Library won a grant from the American Library Association (ALA) and PBS to host programs around “The Great American Read,” an eight-part television series and multi-platform initiative that celebrates the joy of reading and the books we love.

Every time you attend a program or reflect on a book in one of the reading journals available at the front desk, you earn a raffle ticket towards one of five great prize crates.  So what programs are we doing?  Check it out!
