Our #ShelfLife feed on Instagram this week covered all sorts of fiction and non-fiction books, from fashion and memoirs to mystery thrillers and how-to books. If you see a book you like, leave a comment for us and then visit our online catalog to place a hold on it.
Have a great weekend!

If you missed Heather Rogers (@simplyorganizedyou) on WSB with Belinda Skelton a few weeks ago, stop by the Retirement 101 program at the Cumming Library this Sunday, March 12 at 3:00 p.m. This month’s topic is down-sizing and de-cluttering and Heather wrote the book on it…literally. Her book, A SIMPLIFIED LIFE: HOW TO ACHIEVE ORDER AND CALM SO YOU CAN RECLAIM TIME, ENERGY, AND CONTROL, is available on library shelves now. #ShelfLife #librariesofinstagram #declutter #organized
