This year we're also inviting YOU to share your favorite books with the Dubuque community. We've been collecting patron recommendations on our What Dubuque is Reading Pinterest Board for a few months now, and we thought it was time to bring the fun into the library itself. So be sure to stop by the Recommendations Desk on the first floor to pick up a book review bookmark and to check out the display of books selected by our fellow Dubuquers. And don't forget, we still offer the Personal Recommendations service: you tell us what you like to read, and we'll create a reading list just for you!
To celebrate National Library Week, we've pulled together a list of some of our favorite fictional librarians!
