Just One Item - Selena

We have challenged every member of our staff to pick just one item to recommend to our patrons. It's easy to rattle off a list of favorites but to single out and stand by just one suggestion requires discipline and commitment. This succinct and straightforward approach will not only provide passionate suggestions but will offer a tailored window to learning a little bit about each staff member's unique personality and tastes.

Selena is the newest member on staff and just joined the library family this past month. She is already fitting right in - be sure to introduce yourself and welcome her aboard when you see her! Selena's pick is A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. 

Selena chose A Short History of Nearly Everything because it is educational and interesting, which she says is exemplified by this quote from the book: "The upshot of all this is that we live in a universe whose age we can't quite compute, surrounded by stars whose distances we don't altogether know, filled with matter we can't identify, operating in conformance with physicals laws whose properties we don't truly understand". 

Be sure to check back soon for more recommendations from our staff!
