Project Description

STAFF PICKS TO GO

Enjoy a set of six books for adults and a CD audiobook or DVD, carefully chosen by a librarian. Each set is chosen by a librarian and is based on a different theme ranging from Man’s Best Friend — great fiction and nonfiction about dogs — to Crimes in Cold Climes — for those who love Nordic mysteries.

The kits also include a list of similar titles at the library for further reading.
