Libraries Read: 1 Book is an annual "library community read" project focusing on professional development. Library staff from all types of libraries are encouraged to participate by voting on which book should be selected, then participate in the discussion, whether online or in-person.
In August 2015, MCLS completed the first round. The book chosen by community vote was Contagious by Jonah Berger. In July & August 2016, the book chosen by community vote was The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to our Brains by Nicholas Carr. Library staff participated in Twitter chats, Facebook conversations, and in-person book discussions.
