Welcome to the home of One Book One Barnstable, a cooperative reading adventure sponsored by the seven village libraries of Barnstable, Massachusetts. Join us as we read about & discuss the rich cultural heritage of the people of Cape Cod. We'll celebrate Cape Cod’s diverse population, from Native Americans & Puritans to wash-ashores from around the country & immigrants from around the world. Each of us brings our unique culture and perspective to this special place.

We look forward to presenting a six-month series of programs and events centered around the reading and sharing of one book for each reading level. The three titles we've chosen are pictured on the right panel of this page, as well as links to the authors, the libraries, a calendar of events, and other interesting sites.

Programs and events will include book discussion groups, storytelling, history and maritime programs, music, genealogy workshops, gala food events, author talks, children’s activities, a historic hike, and more! There's definitely something for everyone.

Check back with often as we update our calendar of events and give you an opportunity to share your thoughts about the books and programs.

This program is funded in part by grants from the CitiGroup Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
