#ShelfLife - September 30, 2016

It's finally starting to feel like fall! You know what that means, right?


It's a running joke around the stacks that as soon as the first leaf falls, we've all got to put on a scarf and drink a pumpkin spice latte.

At least this week we had an excuse to drink coffee: Thursday was National Coffee Day! Check out the photo below for a book dedicated to your favorite drink. We're pretty "perked" up about reading A History of the World in 6 Glasses (in print or hoopla eAudiobook).

On Tuesday, we took our Instagram feed behind-the-scenes at An Evening with Dennis Lehane. We had a great time listening to him explain how he learned to tell a good story (from his father's lying friends, down at the corner bar) and watching our patrons meet Mr. Lehane to have their copies of Mystic River signed. More photos from the event are on Facebook.

Visit our online catalog at and be among the first to place a request for the materials featured in #ShelfLife this week. When you pick up your book, we hope you'll join the conversation by posting a picture of your own #ShelfLife on Instagram.
