Livermore Reads Together (LRT) is the Livermore Public Library's annual community-wide reading program that occurs each February. The City of Livermore is encouraged to read the same book and participate in the month-long series of free LRT events for adults, children, and teens. LRT aims to boost community engagement with literature through reading and discussion.
The 11th annual aviation-themed LRT was a big success! Hundreds of people borrowed a copy of the community-chosen LRT featured book, Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith, and enjoyed programs for all ages throughout February 2017. All events were free and open to the public. Many events were recorded and may be viewed on the Livermore Public Library’s YouTube Channel.
Huge thanks to the Friends of the Livermore Public Library for generously sponsoring LRT. Visit the Friends' Crowdrise page to donate to specific library programs such as LRT. Also thank you to all our LRT presenters and performers. Of course, the program would not be a success without the support and contributions of the following individuals and organizations:
Last but certainly not least, thank you to all patrons and community members who helped promote LRT and encouraged readers young and old to pick up a copy of Flygirl and celebrate the spirit of aviation with the Library! Stay tuned for next year’s LRT. It’s sure to be another great celebration!
