‘The Hunger Games’ Chosen For One Book, One Barrington Event

In the second year of Barrington Area Library’s One Book, One Barrington event, they had chosen ‘The Hunger Games’ by Suzanne Collins to be the book they will encourage “the entire community to read and discuss the same book.”

Why did Barrington Area Library chose ‘The Hunger Games’ out of so many books in their collection? Here’s what they have to say:

“We actually had a lot of reasons for choosing it,” said Liz Kirchhoff, adult services librarian. “… We thought we’d get a different experience, maybe open up a new book club experience for people.”

Adult services librarian, Liz Kirchhoff, has also revealed that “a couple hundred people participated in One Book, One Barrington last year and anticipates the program to be as popular this year, especially since Lionsgate Entertainment’s film version of “The Hunger Games” is slated for release March 23.”

Head over to Barrington Courier-Review to read the full story.

We don’t know about you but we are really happy to see a chance of getting more people to read and discuss the book. Besides, it would be a great opportunity to wait for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie to be released together too!

Hopefully we will be seeing something like this in our Public Libraries soon!

‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.
