Living Room Library

Your weekly virtual visit to the Small Library!

Week of 4/6/2020

Welcome to the Living Room Library! I am your living room librarian, Ms. Sylvia. Each week I will post a short video of a book I recommend with some other suggested books by that author or with a similar theme, a video book trailer from one of the 2020 Lone Star books, and a video book trailer from a 2020 Maverick graphic novel. You can also contact me from the button below to request a book to be purchased for Sora, one of our online ebook platforms.

Happy reading!
