What if all of Beaverton read the same book?

Welcome to One Book, One Beaverton, Beaverton City Library’s annual community-wide reading event.

The goals of this program are:

  • Bring a diverse community of readers together to discover our commonality and celebrate our differences.
  • Encourage reflection on our place in the wider world and what unites us.

The library would like to thank the New Friends of the Beaverton City Library for their support of the One Book, One Beaverton program.
