On Display: Best Books of 2017

Best Books of 2011Happy New Year! If one of your resolutions is to read more in 2018, we have just the thing you get you started…our 9th annual Best Books display! This year we have combed through 20 year-end best books lists* to bring you over 130 of the top titles published last year. The display includes fiction and nonfiction, print and audio. You’ll find wildly popular bestsellers alongside books that were critically acclaimed yet didn’t receive as much mainstream attention.

Stop by the library’s lobby to browse. If you don’t find anything of interest at first glance please keep checking back. We will add books to the display as new acquisitions arrive and currently checked-out books are returned.

Many of these books are also available as downloadable and streaming eBooks and audiobooks via the library’s OverDrive digital collection. For help using OverDrive, view their Getting Started page or visit the Reference Desk for personal assistance.

Happy reading!
