LibraryReads List February 2017

by Marina February is a month of contradictions. On one hand we have the hearts and chocolates associated with Valentine’s Day. On the other hand, it’s also Black History Month, which contains a lot of struggle and obstacles to overcome (along with pride and courage). And on the last hand (wait, how many hands do I […]

LibraryReads List September 2016

by Marina Another month, another list of 10 books highly regarded by library staff around the country to share with you all! Quite a few focus on the family (both in good ways and bad ways).

by Marina Ahhhh, May. The birds are singing. The flowers are blooming. And, well, the books are being published. Although, this collection of LibraryReads top picks of May releases from the nation’s librarians is less than cheery. Lots of murder, mayhem, mystery, and family drama. The number one choice from library staff voters is Britt-Marie […]
