BookMadnessHere it is: your 2016 Book Madness Sweet Sixteen!

Voting is getting harder, as we have favorites going head-to-head with other favorites. The phrase “Why do you hate me?” might have been muttered by more than one staff member while making their selections. Still, without votes, we won’t have a winner!

It’s time to dig deep, power through and make sure to get your selections in before the Library closes on Sunday. We’ll reveal our Elite Eight next Monday.
