One Book, One Middletown


The Middletown Rotary Club had been proud to sponsor the One Book, One Middletown literacy project from 2003 to 2015. We joined with the City of Middletown, Russell Library and other area libraries and partners.  The goal of One Book is simple...to get a lot of people in the area to read the same book at the same time and then encourage them to talk about it.  By doing so, we hope that more people (especially more young people) will enjoy reading.  The program was passed to a One Book on the River Bend in 2015.
