Book Connection nominations needed!
The Book Connection partnership has been even more exciting, successful, and diverse than we originally envisioned back in 2003! HoCoPoLitSo is now a partner in addition to the Howard County Library System (HCLS).
We’ve fostered community reading of nonfiction accounts and essays, novels, short stories and even a play.
We are now calling for nominations for our 2016-2017 selection. Please recommend a book for the committee’s consideration by Monday, March 2, 2015. Submit a nomination for the 2016-2017 Howard County Book Connection.
The Howard County Book Connection, begun in 2003, seeks to connect our community through shared learning experiences that promote productive dialogue, critical thinking, and intellectual enrichment.
