Books: Leave Behind Winter and Escape into a Book!

If you could escape into any book, which one would you want to escape into_

Would you love to be Elizabeth Bennet’s best friend in Pride and Prejudice? How about going on a date with Don Tillman in The Rosie Project or moving into your own hobbit hole? In celebration of Winter Reading, we asked Library staff what book they would like to escape into! Join in on the fun and tell us what book you’d like to escape into when you sign up for Winter Reading. Winter Reading for all ages lasts February 1-February 29!
