One Book | One Minnesota

by Marilee Tuite

book cover image of Because of Winn-DixieOne Book | One Minnesota is a new statewide book club that was announced recently by the Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library in partnership with State Library Services. One purpose is to bring Minnesotans closer together virtually by reading and discussing a common title. The first book selection is Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo, who currently lives in Minnesota. This novel is a Newbery Honor book celebrating its 20th anniversary of publication.

If Because of Winn-Dixie isn't available in your local community, the digital version is accessible for free on Ebooks Minnesota until June 5. For discussion guides and additional information, please visit thefriends.org/onebook.

Speaking of ebooks, MnDOT employees can access many professional digital resources when connected to MnDOT's network:

For lists of online databases by subject, please visit www.dot.state.mn.us/library/databases-subject.html.
