Our librarian Wendy Kirk and her volunteers, along with library users, have picked out books old and new to inspire and challenge you.
Not sure where to start? Why not ask our Reader in Residence, Magi Gibson? Readers can book a one-to-one session with Magi to discuss where they’re at with their reading, as well as new areas they might like to try out.
We love books at the Library, and we’re always looking for our new favourite book: why not recommend a book you love?
