RA for your Friday

New year, new lists! We’ve got 2024 picks from NPR, BookPage, Vulture, and LitHub. We’ve also got a winter preview from The Millions and upcoming page-to-screen adaptations from the B&N blog.

(Side note: As long as we’re talking about page-to-screen, are your Percy Jackson books in good condition?)

But wait! We have even more lists! Check out these January picks from Amazon, Nylon, People, The Today Show, Shondaland, and the New York Times.

Just a reminder that winter is the perfect time to get some weeding done. Harness your New Year’s drive to declutter, and make some space for all of the great books coming out soon. For those of you who are new to the system, you can find basic information on weeding on our Collection Development and RA Guide. NCLS also provides one-on-one weeding assistance and a recycling program for discards. #shinyshelves

Looking for a way to highlight your physical collections online? Create a showcase! Join the NCLS Tech Services staff as they show interested staff how to create a list of items in Vega that can be embedded into your library website. Classes are January 16 and February 7 – sign up today!

Finally, #FridayReads: Up to my old tricks of toggling back and forth between fiction and non – this time it’s Prom Mom, by Laura Lippman, and The Salt Path, by Raynor Winn. Happy reading!
