Hold on holds got you down? Did you know that many library staff revel in being asked to recommend a book? So even if you can't have something brought over right now, browse the shelves or ask the staff to recommend something that you don't have to wait for!
Some libraries even have Staff Picks displays. These displays show off the diversity of library staff and are pulled from books that are available on our shelves. A selection from one of today's Staff Picks displays:
Backstage with Julia: My Years with Julia Child, Nancy Verde Barr
Lion's Game, Nelson Demille
Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude, Neal Pollack
A Map of Home, Randa Jarrar
A Field Guide to Deception, Jill Malone
Making Toast: A Family Story, Roger Rosenblatt
The Professor and the Madman, Simon Winchester
How to Talk About Books You Haven't Read, Pierre Bayard
The Greatest Generation, Tom Brokaw
Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, Chuck Klosterman
These are all books that a staff member found on our shelves and liked well enough to want to share. Some of them are older titles, but that doesn't mean they're not treasures. What are you going to discover on the Denver Public Library's shelves today?
