Community Reading Events

The library schedules regular community-wide reading events like Let's Talk About It Oklahoma, which includes a series of books on one theme with scholar presentations and small group discussions; and One Book, One Community: Stillwater Reads..., in which the entire community reads one book and attends multiple educational and entertainment events that provide a deeper understanding of the selected book.

The library and its partners support these reading events to foster reading, community involvement, and lifelong learning.
