All Hamptons Read

All Hamptons Read is a collaboration of multiple communities in Hampshire County designed to engage a broad cross section of our population, including children and young adults. Our goals are to foster a sense of community by bringing people together to share the experience of reading and responding to the same book, and to explore its themes in interesting and critical ways.

Books are widely distributed and free. A calendar of events is available and programming, exhibits and panel discussions may be held in each of the public libraries who participate. Please check with your librarian for more information.
