For the month of October, Cedarburg Reads has a book for each age group to recognize the packhorse librarians in Kentucky from the 1930s, who delivered books and taught reading to folks living in remote areas of the Appalachian Mountains. The books are: “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” by Kim Richardson (adults), “Down Cut Shin Creek” by Kathi Appelt (YA readers), and “Books by Horseback” by Emma Berne (young readers). Stop by the library today to purchase a book or check one out! Check our online calendar for events.

About Cedarburg Reads

Cedarburg Reads is a community-wide program with the singular goal of helping Cedarburg residents in meeting your neighbors one conversation at a time.

Designed to bring people together through the reading and discussion of a common book, programs like this one have been implemented throughout the country to create a shared experience of civic unity through the reading of literature.


About Cedarburg Friends of the Library

The Cedarburg Reads program is sponsored by the Cedarburg Friends of the Library, a vibrant, active group of citizens who are dedicated to supporting the Cedarburg Public Library (CPL) through fundraising, volunteer support, and community events.

The Friends organize several major book sales, including the library’s permanent Book Nook installation, southeastern Wisconsin’s largest used-book sale (the Summer Book Sale), and the Winter Fiction Sale. These sales raise funds for enhancements and programs including the 3D printer, the CPL website, the children’s summer reading program, additional bestseller novels, genealogy materials, Great Decisions programs, and more.
