Library Director Jay Johnston, who established Southington Reads, said fewer people read books for pleasure these days and turn instead to the Internet, television or other electronic information sources.He said he is especially concerned about the decreasing literacy capabilities of children, a problem he attributes to the rise of visual communication via computer, television and video games.
"Many people are not able to read complex sentences," he said.
...
"I've very happy that Jay Johnston came up with that plan," he said.

Johnston assembled the Southington Reads group in October and presented it with five books that it had to read in order to select the text that would become the focus of the town-wide discussion.

The Herald - Taste of Southington goes down well
www.newbritainherald.com, 10 Aug 2006 [cached]
"It's really a family kind of thing more than anything else, children especially need to have the opportunity to see others in a social environment rather than on TV or in a transient environment," said Jay Johnston, executive director for the Southington Library and Museum.Year after year, the taste of Southington has continued to expand and develop into an event that brings together hundreds of men, women and children from all different corners of town. "The idea here is to be traditional, to keep the same things up year after year," Johnston said.
...
"This event attracts a certain kind of person, one who may not go to the other events," Johnston said.
