We are in the process of developing a phased approach to reopening that ensures the health and safety of our communities and staff. In doing so, we are following the best available advice from our county, state, and national health officials as well as the American Library Association. We plan to share our reopening plan next month, and our website will be updated with the details of the plan. Read more

Book Match: Mary A.

Mary A.

Mary loves to read widely, but she especially loves fantasy, science fiction, and narrative nonfiction. Mary reads to escape the real world, and loves being immersed in new worlds with strong characters and relationships, and lots of adventure. She also enjoys narrative nonfiction (which reads more like a novel) about history, current events and politics, and collected biographies. She's also happy to help younger readers find picture books, middle grade fiction, and teen fiction.
