Finding METHUEN’s Great American Read!

Have you heard about PBS’s event ‘The Great American Read’ yet?  PBS has come up with a list of 100 favorite books, and is asking people to vote for their absolute favorite.  The one that comes out on top will be considered “The Great American Read”.  They are supporting this with an 8 part television series (it already started – find it OnDemand or when they replay the episodes).

But we thought, “what about METHUEN’s Great American Read”?  Therefore, we are starting a long voting process here in the library to find the answer to that question.  Every week beginning June 11, we will have 5 books up for a vote near the Main Desk.  We’re asking you to vote with your pennies for your favorite book(s).  Vote early and often!  The top 5 books will have a run-off election at the end, and then we will know Methuen’s Great American Read.

The money collected in this voting process will benefit our incredible Friends of the Nevins Library group.  They support the library in so many wonderful ways; they are funding the building of the garden behind the library, they purchase the annual museum passes that so many of us enjoy, and they support our summer reading programs.

Thank  you for your vote!
