Staff Picks



by Jessica Bruder

Nomadland is another “who knew?” title for me, opening my eyes to the realities of an American workforce I didn’t  fully understand. It’s fascinating and a bit terrifying, particularly for those of us who are ‘underprepared’ for retirement.


Little & Lion

by Brandy Colbert

Our September YA Book of the Month pick! Little & Lion is a honest and thoughtful story of love, family, and identity. It will tug at your heart strings with its powerful writing and Suzette, aka Little, is a wonderful protagonist for teens and adults alike. A must read in contemporary YA.


The Glass Sentence

by S. E. Grove

An epic fantasy set in a fantastically broken world. Brilliant for fans of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy! Fiction/Midgrade


Another Kind of Hurricane

by Tamara Ellis Smith

Stunning and authentic story of two boys whose lives become unexpectedly tied together through their own tragic circumstances. Midgrade readers will be able to empathize with the genuine characters in this powerful debut novel about friendship and perseverance. It is the perfect fit for readers who loved Wonder by R. J. Palacio. Fiction/Midgrade
