Sometimes the library can seem overwhelming. We have over 80,000 items, and if you aren’t quite sure where to start it can seem daunting. To help you get started, we’ve started a staff picks display. We’ve consolidated our bestselling Canadian books on to one display canoe, and set the other one aside for books that our staff have read and loved.
We have an eclectic staff with varying reading tastes, there’s a good chance you’ll find something right up your ally. Each book lets you know which staff member recommended it; after a while you might start to notice a staff member that happens to have the same taste as you, and gravitate to their picks. Or maybe your reading habits are varied, and you’ll hop around. Either way, we hope you find something that you love, there is nothing librarians love more than sharing the love of a great book!
We have books for all ages on the shelf, so if you aren’t sure where to start, start by taking a look there and see what you find! Anything on the shelf is available for checking out. You can also ask the staff at any time for reading recommendations. We always love to talk about the books we love, and more importantly the books we think you will love.
