This month's "Staff Selections" guest columnist is Lani, who has worked as a shelver at the Norman Public Library since 2008. Lani was born and raised in Norman and as a little girl spent many of her days wandering through the stacks of books at the library.
"I read a bunch of American Girl stories, the Girls To The Rescue series and Nancy Drew Mysteries growing up," she says. "Today, I’ll read just about anything. Most of the time it is a book’s cover that catches my attention and entices me to read the book. My favorites are fairy tales, myths & legends; I enjoy reading many of the retellings available. Beastly by Alex Flinn is a good example."Add a comment
Friends of the Norman Library recently announced a used book drive to stock inventory for upcoming sales to benefit the Norman Public Library.
“All types of materials in good condition will be accepted,” said Simm Rudnick, book sale co-chair. There is a special call for better books, which includes recent books in very good condition, coffee table and gift books, art books, first editions, books signed by the author, OU Press books and anything about Native Americans and Western and Oklahoma history.
“We are also interested in CDs, DVDs, cookbooks, children’s books, recent college textbooks, and mass market paperbacks” said Lori Rudnick, book sale co-chair.
