What do Charlotte’s Web and Fifty Shades of Grey? have in common?—both earned a spot on “America’s 100 Best-Loved Novels”. The list, compiled from an extensive nationwide poll, is the foundation for PBS’s new show, “The Great American Read,” which premiered May 22. The series is the centerpiece of an ambitious multi-platform digital, educational and community outreach campaign, designed to get the country reading and passionately talking about books.
Join in “The Great American Read” with two events at the McCall Public Library. June 8 – October 19, the Library is sponsoring a local vote to create our own “100 Best Novels~ Locally Loved”, in concert with the national contest. Residents and visitors alike can vote for their favorite novel(s). Stop by the Library or vote on our Facebook event: post the name of your favorite novel, or “like“ a novel already posted. The only limits are the novel must be fiction, and one vote per day please. (Yes, that means you can vote daily for a novel you really love, or mix it up for your top favorites!)
Just a sampling of all the great art our little patrons have been bringing in throughout the summer months.
