The Great American Read - Check Out the Nominees, Vote for Your Favorite

The Great American ReadTHE GREAT AMERICAN READ is an eight-part series on PBS that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey).  During the series viewers will vote to choose the best-loved novel in America.  We'd like to know what Camden County thinks! During the summer we'll have handouts at all the branches with all 100 books.  See how many you've read and catch up on the titles you haven't read yet!  (Most of the titles we have are also available as eBooks and audiobooks.) Vote online or at any of our branches. The winner will receive a gift basket with some of the nominated books. You'll have the summer to catch up on the books you haven't read yet, and in the fall the series will have themed episodes and reveal the most loved book in the country.
