Henry County Reads

HCREADS2014 larger


For the past eight years, New Castle-Henry County Public Library worked with community partners to successfully present community-wide reading events. Our goal is to inspire the community to read books that would enhance appreciation for literature.

In 2010, we launched a locally focused community read called “Henry County Reads.” Past selections included The War Comes to Plum Street by Bruce Smith, the poetry of James Whitcomb Riley, Follow the River by James Alexander Thom, Red Skelton: The Mask Behind the Mask by Wes Gehring, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, and To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

This year’s event will be in October. Stay tuned for details on this year’s book selection.
