We’ve got the NYTimes 10 Best Books of 2015


The 10 Best Books of 2015




The New York Times Book Review editors have selected their 10 best books of 2015, and the Library is pleased to have all of them (one is on order right now) in our collection. Our reference and collections managers Abigal Altman and Audrey Chapuis, with the assistance of retiree-turned-volunteer Simon Gallo, diligently and meticulously read through the many reviews of new books as part of their process of choosing which ones to add to our collection. 

Here is the list of the 10 best books of 2015 as selected by the New York Times (the first 5 being fiction and the last 5 are non-fiction). It’s likely many of these books are already checked out, but Library members can place holds on their favorite titles and perhaps be lucky to have them just in time for the holidays. Happy reading!
