Welcome to D-LiT!
Public libraries are essential, providing free access to vital resources for all. They are increasingly becoming places to connect with other members of the community, and are just as relevant now as they every were. Through new creative programs, events, fundraisers, and public awareness, D-Lit is striving to keep our libraries vibrant and growing!
Dedham Reads Together
Dedham Reads Together is a town-wide celebration of reading, coordinated by D-Lit, with the goals to inspire residents to read the same book at the same time, spark conversations around a common theme, and bring the community together while enjoying a series of enjoyable events.
DRT started in 2011 with To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. In 2012, we looked at the Prohibition era and read two books: The Season of Open Water by Dawn Tripp and Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition by Daniel Okrent. To learn more about those events, click here.
In the summer of 2012, the public was invited to offer ideas for books and themes for the next read in the spring of 2013. The era of the early-1960's bubbled up to the top, with an array of interesting books and program ideas.
