OneBook OneLakeville


OneBook OneLakeville promotes community discussion, family reading, literacy, understanding, and community interaction by reading one book. Local libraries have the capacity to bridge – bring together different types of people who may not share common experiences otherwise. We hope you join us as we seek to bring the Lakeville community together for these common goals.

The OneBook OneLakeville 2019 selection was Bettyville by George Hodgman. 

We celebrated the 11th anniversary of OneBook OneLakeville with New York Times bestselling author George Hodgman, who leaves New York City to care for his aging mother in small town Missouri.  This memoir, full of humor and heartache, addresses elder care with wit and tenderness.
