Some of the most important and interesting nonfiction published within the past year is now on display at the library. These books have been pulled from the stacks by our reference librarians to showcase titles that may have escaped your notice when they were originally added to the shelves. You will recognize some of these titles and authors from the bestseller lists, while others were chosen based on recommendations from professional and scholarly review sources.

Stop by the lobby to browse the display or view a list of titles in our catalog. We will continue to add new books that catch our eye as they arrive, so check back often!
