Did you know that we have a designated bookshelf where library staff displays a special selection of books each month? Try something new with “Staff Picks.” This display has been located at the circulation desk, but beginning in January look for it over by the new book shelves.
In January, staff member Laura Gardoski will be selecting books for the display. Look for a variety of young adult books; they’re not just for teens!
