We launched One Book, One Burg: Louisburg Reads in 2005. We knew of Chicago's literacy initiative to encourage everyone in the community to read the same book and we were hopeful it would be successful in Louisburg. We formed a focus group that developed a month full of programs, events and reading. October was officially declared One Book, One Burg: Louisburg Reads month by the mayor of Louisburg and the first book we read together was Once Upon a Town by Bob Greene.

For the first several years, we structured a biennial event. It was so popular with our readers that in 2011 we made it an annual program.

Our previous titles are a mixture of fiction and non-fiction, appealing to a variety of interests.
