picture of someone reading

What do you look for in a novel? Do you want to be transported to another place or time? Perhaps you want to experience a life much more exciting or maybe just different from your own. I think that every reader is a unique being, so their wants, needs and preferences in literature are unique as well. I also believe that the mood we’re in may affect our literary choices. We don’t always want our usual pick, we sometimes want a change of pace. Whatever escape into a book you’re looking for, the Temiskaming Shores Public Library has a great selection for you to choose from. Stop by to browse our shelves or visit www.temisklibrary.com.
