Woven Together: One Town, One Day, One Read 

Celebrate our majestic National Parks and outdoor spaces with the beautiful picture book, You Are Home: An Ode to the National Parks, written and illustrated by Evan Turk. 

You Are Home is the centerpiece of the library’s latest Woven Together: One Town, One Day, One Read community read event that takes readers on a journey of landscapes and wildlife. Join us for celebrations throughout Mount Prospect and the live Zoom program on March 8 (7 p.m.) that features Turk reading aloud his book. 

Every participating school will receive a copy of the book. Watch for more activities supporting this community-wide experience in the spring. Be prepared to be inspired to enjoy the outdoors in our community or even plan a trip to explore our National Parks. 

The library’s Woven Together Community Read initiative brings together children and educators to celebrate great works of literature, encourage a love of reading, and spark discussions. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
