The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, as the Minnesota Center for the Book, launched this community read to bring Minnesotans together during a challenging time and highlight the role of libraries as community connectors. It’s not too late to start reading. 

Because of Winn-Dixie was chosen for its broad appeal. It is geared for youth but accessible across age groups. In it, ten-year-old India Opal Buloni goes down to the local supermarket for some groceries and instead comes home with a dog. But Winn-Dixie is no ordinary dog, and this is where the story really begins.   

There are multiple ways to access the book. Ebooks Minnesota is providing free digital copies of Because of Winn-Dixievia the library’s website: grandmaraislibrary.org. The library is circulating the title and expecting more copies to arrive soon. Drury Lane Books is accepting online book orders and will deliver books to your door within Grand Marais. To order with Drury Lane Books, please visit drurylanebooks.com.
