What if a whole community were engaged in a book discussion?

Many libraries have asked and answered that question by sponsoring Community Reads projects. Library Journal and Ingram Library Services present a webinar featuring a panel of librarians who have coordinated and managed city-wide book groups in their own communities.

Don’t miss this lively discussion about their experiences and best practices for many different aspects of Community Reads projects, such as planning, title selection, promotion, challenges faced and lessons learned.
