Book Recommendations

The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe

Based on the real-life experience of Dita Kraus, imprisoned in Auschwitz by the Nazis, this is the incredible story of a fourteen-year-old girl who risked her life to keep the magic of books alive during the Holocaust. Out of one of the darkest chapters of human history comes an extraordinary story of courage and hope.

Mr. Limencello's Library by Chris Grabenstein

In this cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and A Night in the Museum, Agatha Award winner Chris Grabenstein uses rib-tickling humor to create the perfect tale for his quirky characters. Old fans and new readers will become enthralled with the crafty twists and turns of this ultimate library experience.
