Book Lover’s Day 2017 Wrap Up

September 21st was Book Lover’s Day 2017!  This is our annual program to share books that we as a department have loved over the past year, give away raffles of popular books, and have a pleasant luncheon while enjoying fiction.

We had a full house this year; every seat was filled!
