Showing our library some love this Library Lovers' Day

Wednesday 14 February is Library Lovers' Day! To celebrate we asked a few of our library staff their favourite books and why they love them. 

Here are their picks:
  1. Michael - Library and Event Support Officer, 'Days at the Morisaki Bookshop' by Satoshi Yagisawa. "Recovering from a tragic life event by living, and working, in a second-hand bookshop is as amazing as it sounds."
  2. Lyndal - Library staff, 'The Book Thief' by Markus Zusak. "I read this book when it first came out, nearly 20 years ago! I will always remember it - it cemented my love of books."
  3. Kirsty - Youth Service Librarian, 'Nightsong' by Sally Soweol Han. "Nightsong is a wonderful picture book with fabulous sounds that link to clever and immersive illustrations. Great for little ones discovering the world around them."
  4. Lucy - Library Officer. 'Demon Copperhead' by Barbara Kingsolver. "A hero born on the wrong side of luck, fighting poverty, foster homes, addiction - an absolutely brilliant epic story and superb writing style from the global bestselling author, Barbara Kingsolver. My best great read of 2023."
  5. Lauren - Senior Communications, Events and Projects Officer. 'The Seven' by Chris Hammer. "A fantastic read set in outback Australia across three generations of secrets, brilliant for crime and thriller lovers with a touch of Aussie spirit, this one kept me guessing all the way through."
  6. Jeremy - Library Officer. 'The Gold Finch' by Donna Tartt. "Genius-level modern realism. Totally absorbing and compelling."
