My library addiction is catching up with me this week. I’ve got unread books due tomorrow that I can’t renew because they’re on hold! I picked up four new books I’m super excited about, but I can’t even look at them because of the backlog! Welcome to the life of someone without self-control, when it comes to requesting books. It’s a pretty good problem to have.
LIBRARIES ROCKING IT THIS WEEK
There’s a lot of interesting and great stuff happening in the library world these days. I found some articles this week about the ways libraries are continuing to change and evolve to meet the needs of their communities.

- Comics for Choice edited by Hazel Newlevent
- Whiskey & Ribbons by Leesa Cross-Smith
- Happiness by Aminatta Forna
- The Sparsholt Affair by Alan Hollinghurst
Once again, a selection of new books, all of which I am excited to read. Because I am always excited to read. All the books.
