Formerly Westlake Village Reads is now Westlake Village Discovers. The City of Westlake Village, the Westlake Village Library, and Friends of the Westlake Village Library co-sponsor Westlake Village Discovers, the City's version of a One City One Book Program. Westlake Village Discovers has established a program that places focus on a main theme rather than a single book. The City continues to "discover" new themes and explore new programs each year. This year's theme is "Adventure." Past themes have been memoirs, food (part one and part two), families, nature, "Optimize Your Brain", "The Arts", "Mystereads", and "Come Together: The Heart of Westlake Village." The themes allow for multiple titles to be read by the community and a wide array of programming opportunities for all ages. The program involves a series of free events which have included movie screenings, book discussions, chocolate tasting, memoir writing, poetry workshops, spy camp, music, nature photography, brain fitness, and a social network seminar.
Westlake Village Discovers will be a one-day multiple program event in February 2020. Westlake Village Discovers is intended to encourage reading throughout the community by readers of all ages. All programs are free and open to the public. Every program will be held at the Westlake Village Civic Center at 31200 Oak Crest Drive.
