One Book One Marin
What is One Book One Marin?
One Book One Marin

The Marin County Free Library, along with City Public Libraries of Marin County and Community Partners Book Passage and Dominican University of California, is pleased to announce the One Book One Marin reading program and we’re excited to be able to share it with the Marin community.

One Book programs take the idea of a localized book discussion club and expand it to cover a whole city or county. Each year, cities across the US select a book of their choice and encourage their communities to read and discuss that book.

The goal of One Book One Marin is to foster connections and build an enriched community through library use, discussion, and the exploration of literature and culture. A variety of community partners collaborate to bring the community interesting programming and events related to the book throughout a three-month period, February – April, each year. Anyone can participate. All events are free and open to the public.
