Community of Readers
Top City Reads Together
Our Facebook group Top City Reads Together has more than 700 members. The group shares new book recommendations and author visit details, discusses what they are reading in comments and during live online book discussions, and interacts with librarians. During 2023 the group is reading around the world exploring authors, cultures and traditions to help us get to know our neighbors around the globe.
Book Rich Environment
The library collaborates with Topeka Housing Authority and the United Way of Kaw Valley on the Book Rich Environment initiative. The goal is to provide quality age-appropriate books to kids and families in Deer Creek, Pine Ridge and Echo Ridge. The initiative also holds a Read and Ride event to encourage reading and bike safety at the end of the summer.
