Library Blog

Like most librarians you’ll meet I love a good story -- and when I find a great one, I feel driven to tell everyone about it. Luckily, my job as a librarian encourages that sort of thing. Two years ago my obsession was Rainbow Rowell’s emotionally on-point teen novel Eleanor and Park, last year it was the PBS historical drama Poldark, and this year, the wonderful story I’ve been telling everyone about is, of course, the musical Hamilton.
