One Book One Belmont 2016 marks the sixth time that the Belmont Public Library has joined with a broad range of co-sponsoring organizations to offer a community-wide reading program.
This year, the programs include an art exhibit, walking tour, programs on women’s suffrage and immigration, an oral history project, book discussion groups and children’s and teen programs
The goal of One Book One Belmont is to build a spirit of community by bringing together individuals and groups through a series of book-related events and discussions and to promote reading as an enjoyable and mind-opening activity. It is patterned after community reads held in hundreds of cities and towns across the country.
