Pierce County READS Involves You and Your Community
Pierce County READS is a community involvement program where everyone in one place, at one time, reads, talks about, shares, and enjoys the same book, with the goal of thousands of people participating and coming together as a community. The program runs from April 1st - May 17th.
The Puyallup Public Library will again participate as an active community partner in Pierce County READS. Multiple copies of McLain’s book are available at the library.
Talk, share and participate in free events during Pierce County READS. Pierce County Library System, The News Tribune and several community partners offer free events for you to further engage in this community-wide program.
