Happy New Year! In keeping with tradition, we have spent the last couple of months combing through some of our favorite reviewer’s year-end best books lists* to bring you our 8th annual Best Books display.
Stop by the library’s lobby to browse 2016’s best fiction and nonfiction titles. With over 160 books to choose from, we are certain you will find something to capture your interest. Some of these books have received numerous accolades and publicity, but you’ll also find great books that did not receive as much mainstream attention. Many of these titles are also available to download or read/stream online from OverDrive, our digital book and audiobook collection.
If you don’t find anything at first glance, we encourage you to keep checking back. Books will be added to the display as new acquisitions arrive and currently checked-out books are returned. If you have a best books list to recommend, please share in the comments.
