Dear colleagues,


One Book Nova Scotia is looking for volunteers!


To celebrate a culture of reading in the province, all Nova Scotians are invited to read, discuss, and get involved in the campaign through the author readings, book clubs, and other planned programming taking place in libraries all across Nova Scotia. The goal of One Book Nova Scotia is to bring together communities across the province through the collective reading of one title. We aim to inspire conversation, foster community engagement, promote literacy, and instill a sense of togetherness through reading across Nova Scotia.


We are currently looking to fill our Programming Chair position, and to populate our Marketing & Promotions Committee!


Programming Chair: The Programming Chair works closely with the author to develop a readings tour schedule. This role largely revolves around connecting with participating libraries to schedule events and accommodation and travel arrangements for the author.


Marketing & Promotions Committee: The Marketing and Promotions Committee oversees collecting content for the website, the development and distribution of marketing materials, and user engagement via media communications (including social media).  


We would be thrilled to add new members to our team! Please contact Maggie Neilson ([log in to unmask]) for more details if you are interested in participating in this awesome program!


All the best,

Maggie Neilson

“Most people don't realize how important librarians are. I ran across a book recently which suggested that the peace and prosperity of a culture was solely related to how many librarians it contained. Possibly a slight overstatement. But a culture that doesn't value its librarians doesn't value ideas and without ideas, well, where are we?”  - Neil Gaiman
