#ShelfLife - May 26, 2017

Yesterday was National Wine Day, so it seems appropriate that we should offer a (virtual) toast of thanks to the patrons who played along with our Throwback Thursday posts of some very old-school filmstrips and shared some of the books they loved reading back in the day.

We had a great time wandering through the stacks and reminiscing as we gathered up copies of The Westing Game, Sweet Valley High: Ten Years Later, and traditional print and graphic novel versions of The Baby Sitters Club. But the most popular throwback of the week was definitely Deenie by Judy Blume. We had to wait on a copy to be returned so we could snap a photo, so it's still a favorite among young readers!

Thank you all for sharing the favorite books of your youth and for taking a stroll with us down memory lane.

If you're looking for something new to read over the holiday weekend, please check out the FCPL Goodreads Group. Our Instagram team will be back online after the holiday and please remember that all FCPL branches will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.
