Reading Communities & Nature

On the Same Page

On the Same Page is a partnership of the Brookfield, North Riverside and Riverside Libraries with the Brookfield Zoo to promote the theme of nature awareness through related books, art and poetry. Running March 1 thru May 3, each library will have book discussions and related programming for all ages.  We encourage you to read Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver.

On the Same Page encourages residents of all our communities to read the same books with the goal of promoting reading, stimulating discussion, and building community. 



The Brookfield Zoo, Brookfield, North Riverside and Riverside Public Libraries present On the Same Page: Reading Communities & Nature. For its inaugural season, On the Same Page paid tribute to the great city of Chicago by reading Never a City So Real: A Walk in Chicago by Alex Kotlowitz. The program also featured a series of fun and enriching events that celebrated the culture of Chicago.
