Beachfront Libraries are the Best Idea…Ever.

Via Huffington Post Books:

"Beachfront libraries are an ingenious addition to shorelines around the world. Forget your book? Go grab a replacement. Finished your latest read? No worries, many choices await you."

We would loooove to have a beachfront library!

"Today America, libraries and the people who come to us for assistance have cause for renewed optimism. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act recognizes that libraries are often the first places Americans seek when they need job training or job search assistance. We’re proud of what libraries have accomplished with meager resources over the last several years. Now, with the support of this legislation, we look forward to a brighter future for the American workforce libraries have served for more than a century."

Every time we think we’ve adequately captured our TBR piles and current obsessions, we discover another book - which of course leads to another book and so on - that reminds us how much good stuff is coming out this fall (and even though we’re reeling from the fact that summer is nearly over, we’re already looking out for great books for 2015), and still there are plenty more! We’ve barely scratched the surface here, but you can always find more 2014 reads on our Goodreads shelf* here. Keep an eye out for our ongoing recommendations, and click on the links below to place holds on items currently in our catalog!

*There’s so many, we could go on for days: dystopian novels, like Love Is the Drug; dramatic reads, like Beauty of the Broken; retellings, like The Fall (as in of the House of Usher); suspense, like Kiss Kill Vanish…and more.
