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 Friends of the Minot-Sleeper Library will recommend their favorites. Stop by the library throughout the month of February to see which books the Friends have recommend, then borrow one or two to read yourself! You can see the selections online by clicking the 'Bristol Bookworms' button above.
