Have you read it? Have you seen it?

Welcome back!

As many know, AAPLD opened to the public on July 20. It’s been great to have patrons in the building once more and to see familiar faces.

Yes, things look a bit different and we’re not yet offering all of our services, though public computers are coming! To make browsing a little easier, and help our grab-and-go visitors, we’ve assembled two new collections, located near the front of the Adult Services area.

Our In Case You Missed It displays showcase the 100 most popular books and films, based on patron check-outs over the last 18 months.

Among our Top 100 movies you’ll find Oscar nominees (Green Book, The Wife, The Mule and Blackkklansman), blockbuster franchises (Mission Impossible, The Avengers, John Wick), musical bio-pics (Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman, Judy), history and current events (On The Basis of Sex, The Favourite, Vice), fantasy (Jumanji, Ready Player One) and more.

Two non-fiction titles are near the top of our Have You Read It? Top 100 Books, Educated by Tara Westover, and Michelle Obama’s Becoming. The list features best-selling fiction authors such as James Patterson, Danielle Steel, Jodi Picoult, and Stephen King. There are also a few classics on the list, including Farenheit 451, The Great Gatsby, and To Kill A Mockingbird.

In the mood for something beachy? Check out summer reads like Elin Hilderbrand’s Summer of ’69, or Sunset Beach by Mary Kay Andrews. Love thrillers? Try Brad Thor’s Backlash, Lisa Jewell’s And Then She Was Gone, or Past Tense by Lee Child.

Each display has a list of our Top 100 that you can take home, or click these links to our Top 100 Books  and Top 100 Movies lists. Use it next time you’re browsing online, or if you prefer, give us a call and we’ll be happy to put an item on hold, to pick up inside at our customer service desk, or at the drive-up window. Don’t forget, our current hours are M-Th, 11-7, Friday and Saturday 11-5, and we are closed Sunday.

We look forward to seeing and helping you soon!
