One Book, One Community featuring Five Little Indians by Michelle Good


Meg Gregory, Dara Hill


In 2021, the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library (TNRL) launched a One Book, One Community (OBOC) project in collaboration with Thompson Rivers University and the Cariboo Regional District Library. The award winning title selected was "Five Little Indians" by Michelle Good. The project became a focus for our system, informing staff development as well as programming into the spring.

We're hoping to support other OBOC projects by sharing key resources, specifically staff training resources, book club kit content, and sample marketing materials.

These resources are offered as a part of an information session offered August 2022. Thank you to all who were able to attend. The presentation file is included and find the recorded session as "Web Link."

Keep it FUN! Engage the Youth in Your Community with Book Clubs


Drayton Valley Library does not run traditional book clubs for tweens and teens. Instead of focusing on WHAT to read, our youth book club focuses on the LOVE of reading, and encourages kids to participate in whatever works best for them - whether a book talk, participation in contests or playing book related games. Drayton Valley Youth Book Clubs encourage youth to use their local public library as a resource and to think of the public library as a FUN place to be.
