Many thanks to all who participated in the Big Read events, nearly twenty in all. Hundreds of people became involved, sampled the library’s collections and services and made connections with one another. The great news is that this is just the beginning. The Friends of the Library are working with the library staff to leap from the Big Read to a whole new series of cultural events–not only books but art, music, and performances–that will begin with the opening of the new library building when it opens on July 10 this summer and last until 2011.

It’s going to be a Big Year.
