Librarian’s Choice Book Club

January 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Have you ever wanted to be a part of a book club? Are you curious about what your favorite librarians are reading? Join us every fourth Wednesday for our Librarian’s Choice Book Club. Each month, one of our librarians will choose a different book from a different genre and host a casual discussion with light refreshments.

For the month of January, our Assistant Programming Librarian, Justice, has chosen What you are looking for is in the library by Michiko Aoyama, translated by Alison Watts. Copies are available at the front desk.
This event will be hosted at Antipodean Books located at 29 Garrison Landing, Garrison, NY 10524. Registration requested.


About the book:
What are you looking for? So asks Tokyo’s most enigmatic librarian. For Sayuri Komachi is able to sense exactly what each visitor to her library is searching for and provide just the book recommendation to help them find it. A restless retail assistant looks to gain new skills, a mother tries to overcome demotion at work after maternity leave, a conscientious accountant yearns to open an antique store, a recently retired salaryman searches for newfound purpose. In Komachi’s unique book recommendations they will find just what they need to achieve their dreams. What You Are Looking For Is in the Library is about the magic of libraries and the discovery of connection. This inspirational tale shows how, by listening to our hearts, seizing opportunity and reaching out, we too can fulfill our lifelong dreams. Which book will you recommend?”– Provided by publisher.
