A Cornell/Community Collaboration
The Tompkins County Public Library has hosted the annual Community Read since 2002. The Library, usually working in cooperation with Cornell University's New Student Reading Project, brings books, authors and events to Ithaca and Tompkins County for this special program.
Visit tcpl.org/community-read.php for updates on the current year's community read selection.
