The Library Staff's Favorite Books

On December 6, the library folks gathered for a staff development day. As you might imagine with a room full of library employees, the discussion navigated towards books... the good, the bad, the notorious and, of course, their favorites. So, in the spirit of the season, they shared their favorites with our community through a display at the front desk of the main library.

Come by and check them out! (Literally!)
