Looking for your next great read or binge-worthy TV series? The Librarians’ List is an exciting new approach to the display by the Circulation Desk.
The Librarians’ List is a curated group of materials carefully selected by Mount Pleasant Librarians and recommended to you. About once every other month, we will display a list of titles (books, movies, music) on a particular topic or theme, and in various combinations, to showcase some of the gems in our collection. You may check out items right from the display or see the entire List on our website, where you can read descriptions and consult our catalog for availability. Takeaway bookmarks will be handy lists for future exploration and discovery.
We are having fun with this, we hope you are too. Let us know what you think. We love to talk about books, movies, and music.
These great reads are books about books. In this group you will find books about the power of reading, thrillers about secret tomes and their messages, heartwarming stories about book clubs, novels where books are object of the plot, and narratives about the process of writing itself. Characters of historical fiction, thrillers, sci-fi, and literature; they’re readers, writers, librarians, collectors; they’re quirky, satiric, and humorous; they’re all there between the covers.
Revisit a childhood fairytale in a modern retelling or scare your socks off. There is something for everyone: wicked witches, poison apples, ghosts, goblins, monsters, and alternative realms in a variety of genres: gothic, mystery, literary, romance, and horror, as well as classic tales.
"Life imitates art far more than art imitates life," says Oscar Wilde. Art and prose come together in this list of great reads about artists, their lives, process, and craft. From humorous to heartbreaking this group includes biographical fiction, suspense, mystery, historical fiction, and social commentary.
