What better time of the year than summer to catch up on those novels or that nonfiction you have been wanting to read?  Whether you read “old school” in paperback, or an ebook through iPad or Kindle, when you find a great read, it can transport you and enrich your life in indescribable ways.

The library has a great guide that gathers Recommended Reading sites all in one handy place.  Check it out for award winners, book reviews, and sites to search by genres or series.

Our library staff also has some great recommendations for you–so pull up a beach chair, get a cold drink, and dig into a great story that may change your life!
