Bradburyville ( is part of The Big Read Initiative sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and is open to the public. Alliance Library System developed the walk-in book concept as a way to further immerse visitors into the novel Fahrenheit 451, the seminal work by writer Ray Bradbury.

Visitors will dress as the books protagonist, literally walk through the cover of a large copy of Fahrenheit 451, then watch and interact as scenes from the book appear around them. Narrations describes the action and themes of the story as the scenes change and evolve. Participants are left with a question to ponder regarding what book they most value or would choose to protect.

In addition to Fahrenheit 451, other Bradbury novels featured on the island include Dandelion Wine, the Martian Chronicles, and Something Wicked This Way Comes.
