ELKHART — There is no mystery behind the reasoning of the choice for the “One Book, One Michiana” program. Some may even say the decision was “elementary.”

For the next month, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes will be featured at libraries throughout the Elkhart County area.

“I think it’s wonderful they’ve chosen a classic,” said Deb Stewart, director of the Elkhart Public Library. She also emphasized the importance of choosing something everyone can get involved with.

“They try to pick one that is multi-generational,” Stewart said.

For the past three Aprils, the libraries celebrate National Libraries Week by choosing a book for the “One Book” program. Libraries promote their choice through clubs and reading groups, displays and themed programming. According to Stewart, each branch does its own programming.

Elkhart, besides offering clubs and discussions on the book, plan to show “Sherlock Holmes,” the movie starring Robert Downey Jr., April 11 in the Movies, Music and More section of the library. “Young Sherlock Holmes” will be shown, for families, on April 18.

For more information on the program call the library at 522-3333 or visit the library’s website at
