Great Michigan Read 2019-2020

The Waterford Township Library is partnering with Michigan Humanities for the 2019-20 Great Michigan Read. Every two years, a statewide panel of teachers, librarians, community leaders, and book lovers selects a book with the goal of connecting Michigan residents by deepening readers' understanding of our state, our society, and our humanity.
