Join us as we celebrate the many voices of our community and the diversity of our experiences in our annual Westmont Reads program. This virtual, winter-long program features titles connected through one common theme: We all have a unique story to tell. We encourage you to read a wide range of books across multiple genres that are representative of the diverse world in which we live. We also invite you to celebrate your own story and your own voice!

Participation in Westmont Reads is easy. Our librarians have curated reading lists so that you can find a selection that interests you. Keep track of your reading list using our Beanstack app, and share your discoveries with the Library. Read one book, earn a prize, and receive an entry into our drawing to win a $25 Anderson’s Bookshops gift card. Each additional book you read will earn you another entry.


I’ve read a great book and logged it. Now what?

Keep reading! Or try out some related activities and earn more chances to win. For adults, we encourage you to join us for our live Zoom program exploring genealogy, and follow along as we create a framed family recipe keepsake. For kids, pick up Westmont Reads Take & Makes—Paper Book: Tell Your Story and Family Garden—and explore your family tree and history.
These programs encourage us to learn more about our own stories and find creative ways to document and celebrate them. Our staff will also be sharing our personal stories through the series Westmont Reads: Our Family Stories.

Celebrate the many voices of our community… and celebrate your own story and your own voice.
