Minnesota, let's read together.

One Book | One Minnesota is a statewide book club that invites Minnesotans of all ages to read a common title and come together virtually to enjoy, reflect, and discuss.

Libraries are essential for connection, and through One Book | One Minnesota, libraries across the state will connect their communities through stories and bring Minnesotans closer together.

The eighth chapter is happening now! Readers can access the ebook and audiobook for free on Ebooks Minnesota from July 11 through September 4. Readers will need to create an account to access the free materials. See below for more details.

William Kent Krueger will take part in a statewide discussion about his book Iron Lake, the eighth featured title in our statewide bookclub.

One Book | One Minnesota is presented by The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, as the Minnesota Center for the Book, in partnership with State Library Services and sponsored by SPIRE Credit Union. Program partners also include Council of Regional Public Library System Administrators; Mackin VIA; Minitex; the Minnesota Department of Education; Recorded Books; and Simon & Schuster. This program is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, as well as through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
