SB Reads 2020

For the tenth year, SB schools and public librarians invite members of the community to engage in a common reading experience called South Brunswick Reads (SB Reads).


This short video outlines our readings to date and explains our newest selection.

Last year we challenged our readers to read globally by exploring characters and cultures worldwide in an effort to foster compassion and kindness for all. This year, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, SB Reads encourages our community to “shoot for the moon” by igniting passion and embracing the future. We want our readers to achieve their personal moonshot with Mission: Possible!


Together we will:

  • read about topics that inspire innovation and spark new thinking.

  • explore stories about individuals who pursued and achieved seemingly impossible goals.

  • discover where our personal passions lie and share them with the South Brunswick community!


For more information on reading SB Reads Mission: Possible, please see your Library Media Specialist or go to our SB Reads Wiki: http://southbrunswickreads.pbworks.com
