As 2020 comes to a close I've been trying to focus on all of the good things that came out of this year. We've all had to pivot in unexpected ways and it hasn't been easy, but we've made it!
One thing that is always a bright spot for us librarians, and many of you, are the books we read that made a special impact. Maybe you read something that completely opened your eyes to a new idea, or that made you laugh until your sides hurt. Maybe you cried a little (or a lot) because that one book just shook you to your core, or made you feel seen.
I hope you've had some incredible reading experiences this year. If you're still looking for that special book, take a look at this list of our staff favorites. You may have seen some of them mentioned here on the blog earlier this year. We just can't stop talking about these amazing reads.
