Everyone knows that librarians spend a lot of their free time reading. But did you ever wonder what we read, or what our favorite movies or TV shows might be? We’ll be giving you a glimpse of some answers to this question as we begin something new and include staff recommendation selections as part of our lobby book display. Each staff member’s selection will have a card taped to it, letting you know who recommended the book, DVD, etc. If something interests you, just bring it to the front desk as you usually would, and we’ll do the rest. Enjoy!
