Big Read is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, which awarded the Pomona Public Library a $17,500 matching grant to provide reader’s guides, audio, teaching materials, and a comprehensive website for everyone who participates. The Library is one of 272 organizations nationwide selected to host the reading program.
