The Big Read-a free event sponsored by Spartanburg Co. Library!

Mark your calendars for the kickoff-Sept. 26, 2009 at 7:30pm at the Sptbg. Main Library. (There will be a laser light show.)

This is the 3rd year for THE BIG READ which is sponsored by the Sptbg. Co. Library.  If you love to read like I do, this is a great event for you and your family.  All of the programs for this event is free! 

What is The Big Read?  It's purpose is to promote reading!  What better purpose could there be,  yes?
Each year a book is chosen for the community to read.  This year it is, Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradbury.  At the kickoff,  free copies of the book will be given out for those who are planning to participate.  From Sept. 26. through Oct. 25, there will be numerous programs including book discussions, films related to the book, fire safety demonstrations, lectures, and many others, at the various library branches, and the main headquarters library on Kennedy Street.  All of the events are free and fun!  You will learn alot, meet other people who have the same interests as you, and enhance your knowledge! 

Visit and see all of the details, including a complete list of dates and times for all of the events!  You can also view pictures from last years Big Read on the website.

I have attended the event since it's inception in 2007, and I can guarantee that you will enjoy it if you love books and reading!

The first year, the book was The Great Gatsby, and the second year it was The Maltese Falcon.

I hope you'll make plans to attend.  Maybe I'll get to meet you there!
