Don't know where to start?

The library staff has selected some excellent titles to help you choose books. You can peruse some of the titles on this library guide or stop in the library to look at them on display. You don't have to read a book from our list; they are merely possible options.

If you want to read a book we don't have in our collection, interlibrary loan is a great and free option. Instructions are in this guide in the "your choice" section or you can ask library staff to lend a hand!
