On Display: Best Books of 2014

Happy New Year and welcome to the library’s 6th annual best books display! This year we have consulted eighteen* best books lists to bring you the Best Books of 2014.

Best Books of 2014More than 150 books and audiobooks are currently on display, with additional titles being added as they are acquired and returned. Many of these books are not only available in hardcopy and CD/Playaway formats, but also as eBooks and mp3 audiobooks via the library’s OverDrive digital collection.

The display includes bestselling fiction and nonfiction books that have garnered much publicity, as well as books that are critically acclaimed but may not have received mainstream attention. Does that pique your interest? Stop by the lobby to browse.

Please visit the Reference Desk if you need help finding a book or would like to learn more about downloading eBooks and audiobooks from OverDrive.
