Staff Picks: 2023 Notable Books

Don't feel bad if you didn't read all the books that you wanted to this year - to be honest, neither did we. Sometimes it's hard to sort through the dozens of dozens of new releases every week. But to help us out, every year we ask Johnson County Library staff about books published during the year that they think patrons absolutely need to know about. We divided them into ten different categories of five books each, stocked with plenty of titles that we hope you enjoy. (Maybe you can start the New Year by reading in a genre you might not otherwise try!) Here's to a great reading year and here's hoping that we finish everything in time for make some space for all the great books that will come out NEXT year! Thank you so much for using the library and making it a part of your lives. We'll see you soon!
