From time to time, when we get a collection of related books into the library we like to share a list on a particular topic, but lately we’ve had some books come in that are too good not to share, even if they don’t fit with a particular theme. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
