There's nothing like the satisfaction of finishing a wonderful book and pressing it into the hands of a friend for them to read.
Hudson Library patrons now have the opportunity to recommend their favorite reads, music CDs or films to others by placing the item on the new "Customer Favorites" display in the library's front lobby.
"The library's Staff Favorites display is the most popular one in the building," says Assistant Director Ellen Smith. "Customers have mentioned they wish they had a place to recommend materials they have enjoyed to others as well."
Any library customer can recommend any item in the library's collection. All ages are encouraged to participate.
Simply select an item from the library's shelves, fill out one of the bookmarks located on the display with your name and reason for the recommendation and place it inside the book. If you'd like to display something you are just returning, remember to have it discharged at the circulation to remove it from your own library account, making it available for check-out by another patron.
The library hopes customers will enjoy reading/listening/viewing selections of fellow community members as much as they do the popular Staff Favorites!
