Library Staff Picks - April 29, 2020

The Best Reading List is a Staff Book Chat Reading List!

Some of the best bookish conversations happen when library staff gets together.  Once a month we gather for an hour before opening, pens, paper and book lists in hand, and dish over what we’ve been reading for the past month – hits and misses and titles to be added to our ever expanding “to be read” lists. Some pretty impressive book lists result from these great conversations, too good, in fact, to keep to ourselves.  Explore for yourself!
