Read the book all of Arlington Heights is talking about - Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer. One Book, One Village (OBOV), now in its eighth year, invites the community to read the same book at the same time and share in the experience through related programs and book discussions.
Copies of Braiding Sweetgrass are now available for checkout at the library, at the Senior Center, on the bookmobile or online on cloudLibrary. Holds can be picked up on the bookmobile, at the drive-up window or inside the library on the hold shelves. Selected passages are available in large type. Young readers can also check out the following books to learn more about Indigenous culture and traditions: Fry Bread (kids), Ancestor Approved (tweens) and This Place: 150 Years Retold (teens).
OBOV 2021 will culminate with a virtual visit by the author on Thursday, October 21, 7-8:30 p.m. This event will be interpreted in American Sign Language (ASL) and closed-captioning will be available. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Click here to register for this special online event.
