READ! Because We Said To ... Or, Maybe Because You Like To: Staff Picks & Posters

Read about the Blackstone staff picks - we made posters, too! See the posters and check out the list of each staffer's book of choice.


As you enter the from the back (Cedar Street) parking lot, you may notice a bunch of posters in the foyer. Each poster features a library staff member holding their favorite or current book, each urging you to “READ.” Come in to see your favorite staffer smiling for the camera!

Following is a list of each staffer and the book they chose (click the link to find the book in the catalog - you can request the book from there. HINT: Ctrl + click opens the link in a new window/tab, leaving this one open):

These posters were a lot of fun to make – some people were more reluctant for a photo shoot than others, but we got some great smiles. It was especially fun to try and figure out what book we'd want to show off and be associated with. 

If you were to have your own READ poster made, what book would you choose? What format? Print? Book on CD? eBook?

I may have to re-read Hitchhiker - too many great lines.

The Dubliners, by James Joyce. One of the best reads I've ever enjoyed. I'd join a virtual book club, as long as we read real books.
