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 fall chapter is here! Download the ebook for free from October 17 - December 12. Join a panel discussion with contributors from the book on Wednesday, December 7th. Details below.
