One Book, One Community

Local libraries are a great place to find entertaining and educational programs and events. One of the hidden gems that York County Libraries’ participates in is the One Book, One Community program. OBOC is a collaboration of local libraries and other participating partners who all read the same book and come together for events and programs. OBOC has been around for over a decade and has seen many interesting reads over that time. OBOC has seen different libraries and different partners come and go, but York County Libraries has been there from the start.

In 2018, the OBOC book selection will be Poison Study by Maria Snyder. The Dillsburg Area Public Library will participate with a pair of book discussions. Both discussions will take place at the library on February 15 at 1pm and 6:30pm.

I had the privilege of being on the OBOC planning committee over a decade ago (for 2007’s Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime) and from that experience I can tell you that a lot of people put in a lot of time to make each campaign a success! OBOC is a gem of a program! Take part by reading the book and attending a program!
