2023 is literally a week away, and what better way to wrap up 2022 than with a list of staff recommendations. One of the many things I enjoy about working in a library is that if I am ever in a reading slump, I can always ask one of my colleagues for a book recommendation. So, here is a list of books that library staff really enjoyed reading this year. The following titles can be found here at A. K. Smiley Public Library.
