By popular request, the Tompkins County Public Library hosts the 9th annual Community Read. The Library, working in conjunction with Cornell University's New Student Reading Project, brings Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? to Ithaca and Tompkins County.
Copies of the Cornell edition of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? are now available in the Library for patrons to check out. Additional copies are also available from the community libraries in Caroline and Danby, from the rural libraries in Dryden, Groton, Lansing, Newfield and Trumansburg, and can be borrowed through the Finger Lakes Library System.
From art exhibits to learning how to write science fiction stories, our Community Read events will be taking place this summer and fall.
Attend one of the Library’s book discussion group sessions in September, or find all the resources you need to lead your own book group! Find discussion questions online, as well as Cornell University’s study questions for Androids.
Explore our foreign language copies of Androids and other Philip K. Dick books in our foreign language booklist.
Check out the books Ithaca’s been reading each year since 2002 for the Community Read in our archive.
Book groups or area agencies interested in obtaining copies for their groups can contact the Library. For more information about the Community Read, or to receive copies for a book group, please contact Sarah Glogowski at 272-4557 ext. 255 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
