One Book, One Community 2014

Each year, the Fargo Public Library, Moorhead Public Library, and West Fargo Public Library team up to promote one book that the entire community reads together, a reading program called “One Book, One Community.”

In 2014, for the first time ever, the title for the One Book, One Community program was determined by a community vote. Six titles were chosen by the One Book, One Community Committee. Voting took place in February. Thank you to all who voted!

By public vote, the title selected for the 2014 One Book, One Community reading project is Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. 

The One Book, One Community committee would like to say ‘thank you’ to our city leaders for unveiling the chosen title at the media event held at the Fargo Public Library on April 15.

    I just moved to the area and would like to get involved. Could someone get in touch with me? I was involved with the Baton Rouge LA group when I lived there and think its a great community initiative. :)
