Have you read a terrific book?

Have you read a terrific book that you think others will enjoy too?  We invite you to share your thoughts about it with other library patrons.  Who knows, maybe you’ll get someone interested in your favorite author.  Whether you read the book recently or long ago, if it’s special, we’d love to know!

Hot pink bookmarks, with “Patron Picks” written at the top, can be found dotted around the adult collection area - at the Help Desk, Self-Check Out Station, Circulation Desk and in the New Fiction area. Help yourself to as many bookmarks as you can fill out with your comments about why this book was terrific.  One title per bookmark, please.  Sign your name, or not, it’s up to you, and give the bookmark to the lovely ladies at the circulation desk.  During National Library Week, April 10-16, we will display the “Patron Picks” books with the bookmarks inside them so others can read your comments about those gems you discovered.  If you heard a good audio book, those count too!  Let us know how the narrator brought the characters to life, or not. 

Does this sound a little familiar?  Then you probably know about our hugely popular “Staff Picks” cart on the second floor under the dome.  The “Staff Picks” cart is where we collect all the latest books that Falmouth Public Library staff have read and highly recommend.  The Staff use bright orange “Staff Picks” bookmarks to jot down their comments.  You’ll find about equal parts fiction and nonfiction, with a few Sci Fi books, DVDs and music CDs thrown in too.  If you haven’t browsed the shelves of the “Staff Picks” cart yet, be sure to check it out.  Many books get checked out as soon as they hit the shelf it seems and new ones are added regularly, so check frequently.

We love to share news about good books that we’ve read.  I hope you do too. Help us celebrate National Library Week in April and tell us what the best books are that Falmouth Public Library has to offer.  If you have any questions, email the reference department at , or ask a friendly librarian when you’re here.
