Loveland Loves to Read 

Loveland Loves to Read is our annual One Book, One Community program.

Each year, community members come together through the reading and discussion of a common book. In addition to book discussions, a variety of related events are scheduled.

Loveland Loves to Read 2021

PLEASE NOTE: The Loveland Loves to Read committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the William Kent Krueger event, due to the ongoing COVID situation in our city and county. A new date is not available yet, but watch for updates.
