Have you read a good book lately that you would like to share with others? Write a book recommendation!

In Week 4 we invited students to share their book recommendations, and thank you to those students who have shared their recommendations! We now have a special book recommendation display area which will be permanent in the library and we would like to encourage all students to share their recommendations on a regular basis.
