One Community Reads

The Council Bluffs Public Library is excited to launch our inaugural One Community Reads!

A One Community Reads program aims to raise awareness to a community or regional challenge through a book selection that supports community discussion, awareness, and action.  This year’s theme, “Your Own Backyard,” and book selections focus on the endangered ecosystem of Native Prairies and the importance of pollinators.  A special focus is on the Monarch butterfly and their unique migration that occurs each year as well as the unique home of the honey bee.

You are encouraged to read one of the book selections, attend a book discussion or host a discussion among your friends and plan for what you can do in “Your Own Backyard.”  There will be many opportunities to learn more about the Native Prairie and participate in engaging programs and events throughout March and April.  Click HERE to learn more about upcoming programs and our community partners.
