Description: 

A statewide reading initiative for all ages, Choose to Read Ohio (CTRO) encourages libraries, schools, families, and others to build a community of readers and an appreciation of Ohio authors and literature. Every two years, with the input of dozens of librarians and educators, CTRO selects and promotes a booklist of 15-20 exemplary titles by authors native to or resident of Ohio. A companion reader’s toolkit is created for each book. Toolkits include discussion questions, extension projects (developed in light of academic content standards and 21st Century Skills), and activities suitable for library programming, classroom adoption, or family or book group use. The poster session features sample toolkits (available for attendees to take), CTRO author READ posters and other marketing items, and photos and evaluation information from creative CTRO projects produced by public, school, and academic libraries. CTRO was established with an eye toward One Book, One Community and other large-scale reading programs, but rather than featuring a single title, CTRO was developed to be highly adaptable, to provide a selection of books and resources for any group from a small book club to a school district or city, and to communicate the breadth of Ohio literature. CTRO is a project of the State Library of Ohio, Ohioana Library Association, Ohio Center for the Book, and other partners. It may be a model for local, regional, or state campaigns in support of collaboration, exploration, and the joy of reading and sharing books.
