Join us for the Fishers City-Wide Read

Even while we are physically apart during COVID-19 we can come together through reading and sharing a great story. #FISHERSCITYREAD #INTHISTOGETHER #IDEASLIVEHERE

Meet Gobi

Through a partnership between the City of Fishers and the Hamilton East Public Library, we are going to be reading the inspirational story of a man and his new found friend, Gobi. This story follows an ultramarathon runner, Dion Leonard who ran across the Gobi Desert and was adopted by a stray dog along the way.

A Story for Everyone

For this Community-wide read, we’ll be leveraging our Library’s hoopla digital collection that includes three different versions of the story that will be perfect for readers of all ages and abilities!

For Adults

For Youth

For Early Readers


With hoopla, You Can Pick Your Reading Preference

If you aren’t familiar with hoopla digital, the all-in-one digital library service contains eBooks, Audiobooks, Movies, Music, Television and Comics and lets you Read, Listen, and Watch with your Library Card.  You can download the hoopla app at your App store of choice or visit hoopladigital.com and then register using your Hamilton East Public Library Card.
