Celebrate Literacy This Month Through the "One City, One Book" Program

During the month of March, Dublin will be celebrating literacy with two projects, "One City, One Book" and "Books in the Park."   

All Dublin schools, both public and private, will be reading, Manjhi Moves a Mountain, a true story written by Nancy Churin. In the story, Dashrath Manjhi used a hammer, chisel, grit, determination, and twenty years to carve a path through a mountain that separates his poor village from the nearby village that has schools, markets, and a hospital. Manjhi Moves a Mountain shows how everyone can make a difference if their heart is big enough.  Residents throughout Dublin are encouraged to participate by reading the book.  

For the second program, Books in the Park, one picture book will be left on a bench at each of the City's 25 parks for families to find and read together while visiting the park.  After reading the stories, books should be left on the park bench for other families to discover.

The goals of both literacy projects are to bring our community together over shared reading experiences, to educate our community on the value of reading, and to learn about the importance of reading aloud.

Both projects are fully funded by Dublin-owned businesses and organizations, and are supported by the Dublin Unified School District and the City of Dublin.
