One Book, One Milton is a community-wide program designed to encourage everyone in Milton to read the same book - similar to one really big book club. One Book, One Milton engages the community through the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book: its contents, themes and relevance, as it relates to the Milton Community.  

There are many ways to get involved and engaged in One Book, One Milton:

  • Read a copy of the book
  • Participate in various events and activities, including the author visit! 

You can borrow, download or purchase a copy of the selected book to read and enjoy. To borrow the book from Milton Public Library, visit us online or in person. You can also purchase a copy at any Milton Public Library location, or at the main event.
