VAN WERT — The 2013 edition of the Read One Program has just passed its halfway point and is entering the second half of the event for this year.

The Delphos Herald and the Delphos Public Library have joined forces to point out the importance of literacy. During the month of October, area residents are encouraged to read at least one book. They are then asked to email the title and the author’s name to The Delphos Herald ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ), drop it off at the office on Main Street or at the library. Participants may turn in as many book titles as they wish.

In early November, The Herald will compile all the titles and publish the list in an edition and online. Only the titles and authors’ names will be printed with the readers remaining anonymous.

Seven newspapers and eight library systems in northwest Ohio and northeast Indiana are participating in the Read One Program this year.
