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. Since then, we have read books about the Prohibition years and the early 1960's. To learn more about previous years' events, click here.
Now, for the spring of 2014, Dedham will be investigating the world-famous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum! Both Barbara Shapiro's book "The Art Forger" and Erin Dionne's book for young adults, "Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking" are fast-paced crime thrillers based in Boston that are sure to lead to some interesting conversations. Who did it, why, what makes an item a "masterpiece," what gives art value, and leave us wondering, "why does beautiful art sometimes make people do ugly things?" Click here to find out more!
