The Friends of the Hood River County Library announces the postponement of the Hood River Reads 2020 program due to COVID-19.

The Friends of the Library is looking forward to holding this program at a later time. Before the temporary closure of the Hood River Library, more than 500 books were distributed to the community.

The Friends encourage patrons to read their copy of “The Highest Tide” by Jim Lynch and discuss the book with members in their household or by phone or chat program with their friends and neighbors, said a press release. There are discussion questions at the end of the book to help guide the discussion. Patrons can explore the layers of marine life in our oceans through the website, The Deep Blue Sea, at
