ready, set, read!

The village libraries of Barnstable are now distributing copies of the books in the One Book One Barnstable series. We have numerous copies that you can check out through the CLAMS system. There are copies that you can take and pass on to someone else when you're done. We'll be leaving books around town for readers to stumble upon. So read one book in the series or read them all! Get your family and friends involved. Attend one of the programs held at the seven village libraries. The calendar is updated regularly as more programs are added, so check back often! For questions and more information, contact your village library.
