Find your escape
Cover Art When was the last time a book crept into your thoughts during the day and made you long for even five minutes of reading time to find out what happened next? Over the past several years, there are a number of titles our librarians have heard about for having that effect, ranging from Gone Girl to The Help. To help fill the void after finishing one of these memorable reads, our librarians have put together If You Like lists on Bookspace. Check out our Fiction page to see read-a-like lists for some popular titles and find the next book that keeps you hooked!

Celebrating MLK Day
Cover Art On January 20, we celebrate the annual Martin Luther King holiday and reflect upon the courage and determination of King and many others during the Civil Rights era. For other stories of admirable African-Americans, check out our list of Black Voices. These stories will both lift your spirits and cause you to really think about race in America and how we can do better moving forward.
