As part of the library's year-long theme, Share Your Story, community members have chosen a few of their favorite books to share. This month, the library's Board of Trustees recommend their favorites. Stop by the library throughout the month of January to see which books Kathleen Haskell, Martha Hulsman, Rosemary D'Arcy, Lucille Keegan, and others recommend, then borrow one or two to read yourself! You can see the selections online by clicking the 'Bristol Bookworms' button above.
