Our Librarians’ Favorite Buys of 2019
Friday, November 29 is Black Friday, where everyone goes crazy shopping. This seems to be a fitting time to remind everyone that librarians go shopping all the time. We buy books for the Library! Each of us is responsible for particular subjects. Over the year, certain books we’ve ordered stick in our minds. Making lists is another thing we do. Click on Read More to see a list of each Librarian’s four favorite buys of 2019 (along with reviews and a link to the catalog).
Library Director Laura Eckley
Since Laura is the Library Director she doesn’t actually order anything. But she is the Director, so in that sense she orders everything.
Head of Reference Liam Hegarty
Liam buys Science, Science Fiction, Fantasy and Law (as well as Large Print, Audiobooks, eBooks and eAudiobooks).
Librarian Frank Connelly
Franks buys most of our nonfiction, including History and Biography. He’s actually on vacation right now so this is our best guess.
Librarian Paul Doherty
Paul buys DVDs as well as magazines, art, sports, graphic novels, computer books and travel. That’s a lot so he gets two slots.
Librarian Alex Gaete
Alex buys Fiction and Poetry (which she actually likes) as well as the Criticism thereof.
Librarian June Hesler
June only works here part-time now. Instead of doing everything at the Library, she now only does almost everything as well as orders Cooking and Gardening books.
Teen Librarian Kim Larsen
Kim buys all the books you’ll find in The Loft, our teen area on the top floor.
Head of Children’s Services Rebecca Teglas
Rebecca splits buying children’s books with the other Children’s Librarian, Linnea Moosmann.
Librarian Linnea Moosmann
Here are Linnea’s picks.
