Get ready!

Fayetteville's Big Read will occur during National Library Week in April 2007. From April 14-21, 2007, the community will be immersed in Ray Bradbury's classic novel, Fahrenheit 451. A variety of activities geared to all areas—film screenings, music and drama performances, discussions, lectures, after-school activities, and old-fashioned, family fun—will demonstrate the power of reading. One programming highlight is “17 on the 17 th ”—on Tuesday, April 17 th, the library will host 17 book discussions in various locations around town. Discover the library in unexpected places!
This event is part of The Big Read, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Arts Midwest.
