One City, One Book
What if everyone in Greensboro read the same book...and then set out to build a stronger community? Every other year, the Greensboro Public Library along with many partners, leads a city-wide reading of a selected title. Lively programs of discussion, films, theatrical productions, readings, and more are held to engage the entire community in the theme of the chosen book. The next One City, One Book will be held in Fall 2019. The book selection process is underway. Visit the archive of Past Projects for more information about each selection.
El Día de los niños
(Day of the Child) is a celebration of childhood and literacy. Join the Greensboro Public Library, Casa Azul, the Latino Community Coalition of Guilford County, and other community partners for our annual celebration on Saturday, April 28 from 1-4:30 pm on Church Street between the Central Library and the Greensboro Children’s Museum. We will have books, music, dancing, art activities, food, and much, much more. It’s bilingual fun for everyone!
Each year June through August, the Library hosts a reading incentive program to encourage kids of all ages to keep reading through the summer. Reading logs are distributed for kids to record their own personal reading goals, and the titles they have read. Participants are encouraged to bring in their reading logs throughout the summer to receive small prizes. Every week the library hosts dozens of fun and educational programs to make library visits exciting and memorable.
