Area Libraries Join Forces for 2012 Fox Cities Reads
Area librarians are inviting Fox Cities residents to get excited about reading and the book selection they have collectively chosen for the 2012 year to engage the community once again in participating in the area's Fox Cities Reads community book read.
The sixth annual event will kick off with an author/book selection announcement on Tuesday, January 31st.
This year's Fox Cities reads is being presented to the community by University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley and the following area public libraries: Appleton, Neenah, Menasha, Kaukauna, Kimberly, and Little Chute.
"We have chosen an award-winning author and motivational speaker who has an exceptional gift for helping people of all walks of life to dream big," noted Jeff Kuepper, president of the Fox Cities Book Festival.
Brian Kopetsky, community partnerships supervisor for the Appleton Public Library, agreed, adding, "Our excitement over this author's work is palpable and we're hoping the excitement we have as participating libraries for this year's community read will be shared by the public."
The three-month long Fox Cities Reads will culminate in April, when this year's author visits participating libraries for scheduled presentations on April 16, 17, and 18.
The author's presentations will be held in conjunction with the area's fifth annual Fox Cities Book Festival.
