RA for your Friday

It’s spring! Everyone can start weeding now!

Just kidding. Weeding is something you can do all year round. But there is something about the warm weather that inspires a spring clean, and clearing out items that are damaged, worn, outdated, or no longer relevant makes room for new materials – which is essential in a small library with limited shelf space. (Interested in a weeding visit? You know how to find me.)

Speaking of new materials, the April Library Reads and IndieNext Lists are out!

In awards news, we’ve got the Women’s Prize longlist and the ballot for the Nebulas. And for all you audio fans, we’ve got the 2022 Audie winners!

And speaking of audio, if you’re not already aware of the podcast Strong Sense of Place, allow me to put it on your radar.

And speaking of putting stuff on each other’s radars, we had a great chat during our first Friday Reads conversation about books we’re loving right now. (And learned how to pronounce many authors’ names!) If you’re interested in the titles that were discussed, you can find them here. If you’re interested in joining us next time, you can sign up here!

Finally, #FridayReads: I don’t know why I’m so drawn to medieval stories these days, but as they say in baseball (or baseball movies, at least), a player on a streak has to respect the streak. So, I’ve just started Matrix by Lauren Groff, and there may be some Cadfael in my future… Happy reading!
