Two Towns –
One Book

TTOB logo
Two Towns-One Book: Clifton Park & Halfmoon Read! (TTOB) is a program of the Friends of the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library. 

Our Mission

Our goal is to bring people in our community together through the reading and discussion of a shared book. Our choices inspire rich discussion and community activities and encourage younger readers to participate through companion books and related activities.

Kids Read, Too

Our Kids Read, Too!! committee has selected some junior companion books for families to read together with the hope that everyone will participate in discussions regarding the importance of using one’s strengths and sharing one’s story. Learn more about the Kids Read, Too Program here.

YOU love to read – so let’s read together!

One book for two towns. Get involved along the way nominate and then vote for the book you believe will inspire great discussions. Tell your neighbors and join us for many exciting events!
