First things first! Just a quick reminder that the best time to weed is always. But if it’s been a while, and you’re looking for some one-on-one assistance in advance of our ILS migration, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Whether you’re looking for general advice, or literally want me to come to your library and roll up my sleeves, I’m here for it. You can also check out the video from the weeding class held earlier this month.
Last call for spooky booklists! We’ve got Halloween Reads for Scaredy Cats from the NYPL, and at the other end of the spectrum, Books that Prove We’re Living in a Golden Age of Horror from CrimeReads.
Looking ahead to next month, the November Library Reads and Indie Next lists are out!
Did someone say November? (Me! It was me!) It’s almost Nonfiction November, and I’ll be participating in a 30-day Instagram photo-a-day challenge featuring only nonfiction titles. Hop on over to the NCLS Instagram account (@northcountrylib) to follow along, or play along yourself! (And be sure to tag us!) You can find the prompts on the What’s Nonfiction blog here.
In awards news, we’ve got the Carnegie longlists, the MacArthur fellows, and the Booker Prize!
Finally, #FridayReads: I’ve just started Thistlefoot, by GennaRose Nethercott, and I’ve gotten my hands on the latest Ruth Galloway, so I’m all set for the weekend. (And the next one, most likely. #slowreader.) Happy reading!
