Help choose the Coronado Public Library 2022 Coronado Community Read title! Vote for your favorite from the Top 5 list. Voting opened Jan. 14 and will remain open through Feb. 6.

Vote by going to commentcoronado.org or by submitting your vote to the ballot boxes located at Bay Books Coronado, the Coronado Historical Association, City Hall, the Spreckels Center, or the Coronado Library.

The Community Read program encourages discussion and participation in community-building events around the chosen title, which is selected by public vote. The winning book will be announced in mid-February, with related programs for the public taking place in April.

This past fall, the Coronado Community Read Committee, led by the Coronado Public Library, asked for nominations for titles that would be engaging as a community shared experience. Over 35 unique books were submitted spanning a wide range of subjects and genres. The committee then narrowed down those titles with the help of Coronado book clubs by looking at the submitted titles and choosing those that have the broadest community appeal, most compelling narratives, widest availability, and timely content.

Presented in no ranked order, the top five books are “West with Giraffes” by Lynda Rutledge, “Hamnet” by Maggie O’Farrell, “Into the Beautiful North” by Luis Alberto Urrea, “The Midnight Library” by Matt Haig, and “The Dog Who Could Fly” by Damien Lewis.
