Little known fact: Just a few dozen yards from the Croton Free Library lies the grave of activist, playwright, public intellectual, and artist, Lorraine Hansberry.

Allison Pataki (2018)

Croton Reads 2018 – our landmark fifth year for this program — was a great success as we chose a work set in the Hudson Valley.

Mary Roach (2017)

Since our first annual Croton Reads in 2014, the Croton Free Library has strived to bring both popular and varied types of authors to our community event. We’re happy to announce that Croton Reads 2017 marked the first year we’ve celebrated a nonfiction author.

R.J. Palacio (2016)

While Croton Reads has been a highlight in town over the last few years, our third annual event was made all the more special by including readers of all ages. We couldn’t have chosen a better book to truly make this a reading experience for the entire village

Michael Cunningham (2015)

We can’t claim that we planned it that way, but we couldn’t have asked for a more perfectly themed setting for Croton Reads 2015. Freshly falling snow covered the village as readers crowded into the Ottinger Room on March 1 to meet The Snow Queen author Michael Cunningham.

Colum McCann (2014)

The inaugural Croton Reads event was held on Sunday, March 9, 2014 at the Croton Free Library with almost 150 people in attendance. TransAtlantic, written by Colum McCann, was the 2014 Croton Reads book selection. Colum is the author of six novels and two collections of stories.
