Longwood Gardens Community Read

This winter and spring we join local libraries and community partners for the ninth year of Longwood Gardens Community Read! This year, we ask readers to explore the concept of trees as nature’s great connectors. The three books this year are:

We Planted a Tree by Diane Muldrow, for children.
Canopy Career Chronicles by the team from Morton Arboretum, for teens
The Songs of Trees: Stories From Nature's Great Connectors by David George Haskell, for adults. 

Participating Delaware County libraries will hold programs in the coming months based on the Community Read books. Find all three books at your local library by clicking on the highlighted titles above. Find more information about Community Read here. A full list of programs in Delaware County libraries is located in our event calendar.
