All Delco Reads: “One World, Many Stories”
For the past several years, communities across the country have launched reading programs that encourage everyone to read a common book. The goal is to promote literacy and to bring communities together through their mutual interest in one book. Delaware County has a program known as "All Delco Reads," organized by the Delaware County Reading Council. The theme for this year is "One World, Many Stories" and four outstanding books have been selected that exemplify this theme
Delaware County Council is once again partnering with the Delaware County Reading Council and the Delaware County Library System to urge young people and adults to read one common book and to discuss it among friends in organized book clubs or at library programs.
The four selections are:
• Every Falling Star by Sungju Lee and Susan McClelland for high school students and adults | book & eBook/audiobook
• Arcady’s Goal by Eugene Yelchin for middle school students | book & eBook/audiobook
• The Little Tree by Muon Van for primary elementary school students | book
• The Soda Bottle School by Laura Kutner and Suzanne Slade for intermediate elementary school students | book & eBook/audiobook
The Delaware County Reading Council was organized in 1963 and meets monthly to discuss ways to promote literacy.
