One Community Book Read Program

The One Community Book Read Program is a joint venture among public libraries in Madison, Estill, Jackson, Powell, Rockcastle, Boyle, Lincoln, Garrard, and Laurel Counties.  Author Silas House donated copies of his book, Eli the Good, to encourage reading and discussion among various groups.  Rockcastle County Public Library Director Pam Chaliff invited students from RCHS to participate in this opportunity, with Mrs. Markita Proctor’s sophomores and Mrs. Casey Harper’s freshmen (a total of 55 students) taking part.  Students completed graffiti posters about cultural references to the 1970s setting of the book with RCHS Librarian Janet Wells and Mrs. Chaliff facilitated a discussion on Wednesday, November 9th in the RCHS Library.
