Making a list . . . - 12 Dec 2013
Thinking about gifts for the book-lovers in your life? The New York Times recently released its editors’ picks for the 100 Notable, Ten Best, and Notable Children’s Books of 2013. If you don’t find an idea there, try Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2013 or Forbes' Best Books of 2013 for top-notch nonfiction with a business slant.
And, remember, even Santa deserves a break! This holiday season, be sure to kick off your boots, relax, and read a good book from the Library. I recommend The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce (on the ALA’s list of notable books for 2013.)

We must send out a great big thank you to the Friends of the Library and the Library Foundation who make this event possible each year. We also could not put on this event without volunteers from the community! Thanks to everyone who shared in our “Home for the Holidays” Holiday Stroll.
