Sharing Books Day 38 - Library The Musical!

For each day of this year's Share A Book fundraising campaign we're going to tell you about a book. Why? Because we want to celebrate the sharing that goes on everyday at our libraries with an extra special effort. It's our job to share books, and we want to do the best job we can. We're calling these books we're going to tell you about the Share A Book 42. Day 38's book is a very unique autobiography, click the video to watch, or visit your local library for more information.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 so we can keep the community reading. If you believe in sharing please donate. Visit your local library for more information on how you can support Share A Book or click the link to our donor card. Thank you so much for belonging to the Library!
