Library to Host "The Big Read" Community Forum

November 11, 2014

The Boyle County Public Library will host The Big Read Community Forum on Wednesday, November 12th at 4:00 pm to discuss community participation in "The Big Read," a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) program designed to restore reading to the center of American culture. "The Big Read" provides organizations with grants and comprehensive resources that support their efforts to inspire their community to read and discuss a single book. More information about "The Big Read" can be found online at

In this Community Forum, we will be discussing opportunities for partnerships with local businesses, brainstorming ideas for related programs, and begin the process of selecting a book.

Members of the community interested in participating in The Big Read Community Forum may register by contacting Mary Flachbart at or by calling the circulation desk at 859-238-7323. Online registration is also available.
