If you are a regular reader of this blog then you know that Reference Librarian Jill Erickson and Cape Cod Times Book Editor, Melanie Lauwers, appear monthly on Mindy Todd’s radio show, “The Point” (WCAI 90.1 FM) to discuss books. This morning’s show was a pre-recorded discussion of books about animals. If you missed it at 9:30 a.m., don’t worry, it will be rebroadcast at 7:30 p.m. tonight and as always, we post the lists of books that Jill and Melanie discussed (see below). Books that are available in the Cape and Islands Libraries network (CLAMS) are linked directly to the catalog.
