Community Read speaks to fans of Millbrook Literary Festival
MILLBROOK — Although the traditional Millbrook Literary Festival could not take place this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers were able to creatively restructure the much-loved affair into a Community Read. The free day-long event was held on Saturday, Sept. 18, and drew a great number of participants from around the community.
The village-wide literary-themed Community Read was held in locations throughout Millbrook where one might find bibliophiles, from the Millbrook Library to Merritt Bookstore, with activities planned for the youngest of children all the way up to the eldest of adults.
The Community Read turned out to be a great success, thanks to the combined efforts of all involved. Local benefactors helped fund the various activities, while those who organized the modified Literary Festival lent a hand in planning the Community Read.
