Brought to Arizona in 2002, and coordinated by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, ONEBOOKAZ is an exciting program that brings communities together through literature.

In the fall, ONEBOOKAZ hosts an eBook writing competition that strives to encourage writing, reading and thoughtful interaction with literature in digital formats.

Beginning in April, communities across the State of Arizona read the winning books at the same time and participate in discussions and programs centered around the ONEBOOKAZ winning titles.
