Patron Recommendations

With the library building closed, we have been asking our facebook and twitter followers if they have any good books (or shows or movies!) to recommend. The response has been wonderful!

Here are the suggestions so far-we will add them as we get them, and hope to keep this concept up in some way, going forward! We linked to CLAMS eBooks for each when possible. Go here, or download the Libby app, to get started! As always, call or email us if you need help.
