If you have spent any time in our branches, you’ll know that staff take pride in showing off the library collection through interesting and topical displays. 

Now that we have transitioned to our new catalogue, we have the ability to share digital displays (aka curated lists) with readers. 

Take a peek below to browse some of our recent staff-curated lists. To learn more about any of the titles, or to place a hold, click the book cover and you’ll be directed to our catalogue. 


Read before you watch: Netflix

List created by Gillian

These books inspired popular shows that are currently steaming on Netflix. 

If you liked Where The Crawdads Sing

List created by Marg

These primarily historical fiction books are all set in the South. Great reads for curling up on a porch swing and sipping a glass of sweet tea!

Alternative: Novel in Verse & Illustrated Memoir

List created by Jennifer

A novel-in-verse has less words and more impact! These novels are intense, thoughtful, and diverse. Illustrated memoirs are visual hybrids that offer a unique twist on the usual memoir.

Women with Wings

List created by Saige

For the reader who is looking to learn about and experience the battle for the sky that female pilots have brought to us throughout history. Enjoy this list filled with fiction and non-fiction books alike, and feel the wind under your wings as you soar through the pages.

"Couldn't Put it Down"

List created by Marg

These psychological/domestic thrillers will keep you up past your bedtime, but they are so worth it. Just one more chapter…or maybe two!

Immigrant and Refugee Voices

List created by Kelly

Check out these children’s books that highlight the stories of people who used to live in other places.

Reads for Reluctant Tweens

List created by Geneva

Here are some book suggestions for  kids or tweens who are starting to get a feel for reading and want to read some “crazy good” books.
