One Book, One Milton is a community-wide program.

A book selection committee comprised of Milton Public Library staff members consider the following criteria when choosing Milton’s read.

The One Book, One Milton book selection must:

  • Be written by a Canadian author
  • Have been written for an adult audience
  • Appeal to both men and women
  • Engage the reader
  • Generate a sense of excitement
  • Sustain a complex discussion
  • Raise issues of importance


One Book, One Milton is a community-wide program designed to encourage everyone in Milton to read the same book – similar to one really big book club.

One Book, One Milton engages the community through the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book: its contents, themes and relevance, as it relates to the Milton Community.

There are many ways to get involved and engaged in One Book, One Milton:

  • Read a copy of the book
  • Participate in various events and activities, including the author visit!


You can borrow, download or purchase a copy of the selected book to read and enjoy. To borrow the book from Milton Public Library, visit us online or in person. You can also purchase a copy at any Milton Public Library location, or at the main event.

If you need help downloading the eBook, please let us know as we are happy to help!
