Tea & Talk: Libraries Around the World

In this video, we circumnavigate the globe in search of some of the most unusual and awe-inspiring libraries collecting more than just books. We begin in Alaska at a particularly *macabre* library checking out preserved and taxidermied animals, head on over to China to kick back in a surreal, infinite reading room, and get a whiff of history at the library of smells. Before you join us, please watch the video, and register at by 9am on February 21st to receive a Zoom invitation.

What’s on Your T.B.R. Pile? With Author Maurene Goo

We're thrilled with this monthly series - What's On Your TBR Pile? - with some of our favorite authors! TBR is "to be read" and we all have stacks we know we can't read in our lifetime. But, with a little help from our favorite authors, we can refine or (goodness!) add to our piles. Today we hear from YA author Maurene Goo (whose love of K-Drama is well known!). Wonder what she's read and loved lately? Join us!

Register online.
In partnership with the Ashland Public Library.
