What Stacks Up: A Short-term Exhibition of Favorite Books
In our society of dedicated readers, one question eternally recurs: if you had to pick one favorite book, which one would you take off the shelf for the umpteenth time? When we asked members and staff, their answers were delightful, quirky, and often unpredictable, ranging from War and Peace to Lucky Jim to Singing Family of the Cumberlands.
Visit our short-term exhibition for a look at beautiful book covers and fellow readers’ recommendations. You may be surprised, enchanted, or inspired by the titles we hold dear to our hearts.
