March Book Madness

March Madness is right around the corner and we are joining the fun here at the library. We have put together a March Book Madness bracket and are asking for your help. We will open up voting on Monday, March 2nd. Each Monday we will announce the previous week’s winners and voting will start again until we narrow it down to just one ultimate favorite book! You will be able to vote here on our website or in person at the library. Until then, be sure to read any of the books on the bracket that you haven’t read before. You might even find a new favorite!
