January books for our online book groups!

Happy 2018! We hope you were able to enjoy time with friends and family over the holiday season, and are ready to jump back into the exciting library world! We have new books in our Goodreads online book groups that we hope will inspire and support you in your work at your library. Is there a professional development or library-related fiction book that you’d like to read this year? Please comment with your suggestions!

For our group CMLE Librarian Professionals, we will be inspired to create positive change in the workplace and the world  when we  read Ellen Pao’s Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change.

“Ellen K. Pao’s Reset is a rallying cry–the story of a whistleblower who aims to empower everyone struggling to be heard, in Silicon Valley and beyond. In her book, Pao shines a light on troubling issues that plague today’s workplace and lays out practical, inspiring, and achievable goals for a better future.”


For our group CMLE Librarians Enjoying Books we will be exploring the mysterious fantasy of The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins.

A missing God.
A library with the secrets to the universe. 
A woman too busy to notice her heart slipping away.
Populated by an unforgettable cast of characters and propelled by a plot that will shock you again and again, The Library at Mount Char is at once horrifying and hilarious, mind-blowingly alien and heartbreakingly human, sweepingly visionary and nail-bitingly thrilling—and signals the arrival of a major new voice in fantasy.”

We hope you find these books useful and enjoyable as you begin 2018! Thanks for reading with us!
