From May 22 – October 23, we’re joining PBS’s The Great American Read, a nationwide hunt to find America’s best-loved books. Read from PBS’s 100 Best-Loved Books list, and submit a vote for your favorite at The Great American Read website. Along the way, you can also cast your ballot to determine the best-loved book in YOUR community through SCCLD.

Join us to celebrate the power, passion and joy of reading through the lens of America's 100 best-loved books. These interesting titles, gleaned from a representative poll of Americans, can be found at your community library in a variety of formats.

Starting August 15, join The Great American Read online at https://sccl.beanstack.org. You will be able to track books you have read and are reading.  There are even some fun activities, like voting for your favorite book at https://www.pbs.org/the-great-american-read/vote/. Keep on reading and help to define the one book to rule them all!
 
Stay tuned to learn more about The Great American Read, and to learn which book is voted as America’s favorite on PBS, as well as the favorite book in your community.

The vote for America's favorite read was launched on May 22 with the premiere episode on PBS, and will continue throughout the summer, leading up to the finale in October 2018.

What is YOUR community’s favorite read? Vote here or on a paper ballot at your local library. Your community favorite will be announced this fall.
