Albion's Big Read Presents


For the second straight year, Albion proudly hosted The Big Read in October 2016. The Big Read is a project that aims to bring communities together through a shared reading experience. This year, Albion read Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Click the image below to watch the 2016 Celebration Video!


October got us fired up! Events included celebrations, speakers, concerts, book discussions led by local youth, art exhibits, and more! All Big Read events are free and open to the public.
