This summer, BV reads together! The Buena Vista School District, the Buena Vista Public Library and GARNA are pleased to team up to bring a series of events and opportunities to connect around selected books. A Community Read promotes closer ties through our shared experience of reading, sharing and discussing the same books and its ideas. Read one (or all!) of these books with us. Together, let’s cultivate a culture of reading!  #BVcommunityread2021
