Share your Desert Island Picks

Here's a request from Adult Services Librarian Dorothy Pawlowski.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what books would you want to have with you? We’d like to know your all-time favorite titles, fiction or non-fiction books that have had a lasting impact on you. To date, submitted titles include a range from A. A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh to Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind, Sebastian Junger’s The Perfect Storm, and Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina.

In April, we will be featuring the books selected in displays throughout the Library. In addition, a printed list of recommended titles will be available. We’ll also be discussing “The Best Books You’ve Ever Read” at the Library’s Books & Breakfast meeting on Monday, April 13th. Books and Breakfast is a monthly informal book chat, a forum for library staff and library patrons to share their favorite reads. The April meeting will take place in the Library’s Dayton Program Room at 10:30 AM, and refreshments will be served. We hope you’ll join us.

“Best Books” survey forms are available at any service desk in the Library, or you can e-mail the titles of your favorite books to
