One Book One Town logo

The town of Fairfield chooses a book each year and encourages the whole town to read it and engage through dialog and programming. The One Book One Town (OBOT) committee is run by the Fairfield Public Library (FPL) and consists of librarians and staff from FPL as well as the Pequot Library, Fairfield Museum & History Center, Fairfield Public Schools, Experience Fairfield, WSHU Public Radio, Sacred Heart University's Library, the Fairfield University Downtown Store and our DiMenna-Nyselius Library.

The 2024 OBOT title is...

Warrior Girl Unearthed by Angeline Boulley
