Book to Action is a grant-funded program through the California Center for the Book that takes the basic book club concept and expands it to create a dynamic series of events for adults and multigenerational groups. In 2021, 35 library jurisdictions were selected to create a Book to Action series. Librarians work closely with community partners in engaging community members to read and discuss a book on a current topic, attend author or speaker events, and put their new-found knowledge into action by participating in a community service project or civic engagement activity related to the book.


California Center for the Book is a program of the California Library Association, supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
