One Book Siouxland is a new program launched by Siouxland Libraries to encourage area residents to read the same one book and discuss it as a community. The first book selection is Fredrik Backman’s best-selling A Man Called Ove. The story’s theme reminds us all that people can change, even if set in their ways. Copies of the book are available at all Siouxland Libraries locations. To aid in the community conversation, several activities and events are scheduled this spring. Find the full schedule at
