Join us for Castro Valley Reads!

We’re pleased to announce the first annual Castro Valley Reads! Join us for the Kick Off Event on Sunday, January 21 from 2 pm to 3 pm at the Castro Valley Library.

Following the lead of successful city-wide read programs from across the country, Castro Valley Reads seeks to get as many people as possible to read and discuss the same book to celebrate reading, great literature, and to build community through a thoughtful exchange of ideas.

The 2018 book selection is Lab Girl, a witty and moving coming of age story by acclaimed scientist Hope Jahren.

At the Kick Off Event You Can:   

  • Get a free copy of the book.
  • Sign up for a book discussion.
  • Hear dramatic readings from Castro Valley High School students.
  • Learn how you can get a special invitation to meet Hope Jahren.

The celebration continues throughout February and March with many special Castro Valley Reads programs.

If you can’t attend the Kick Off, please come to the Library after January 21 to sign up for a discussion. Free copies of Lab Girl are available while supplies last.

Castro Valley Reads is generously funded by the Friends of the Castro Valley Library.
