About

Welcome to Waukesha Reads!

Waukesha Reads provides citizens the opportunity to come together to read, discuss and celebrate a single book and author. Since 2007, the program has been coordinated by the Waukesha Public Library and its many community partners. Waukesha Reads is designed to promote reading and unite our community through great books by:

  • Providing citizens with opportunities to come together and exchange ideas through the discussion of literature.
  • Providing a wide range of programs and events that appeal to members of our diverse community.
  • Engaging our population in learning about the wider world through the eyes of different authors and types of books.
  • Distributing free books and inviting all to share the experience.
