Staff Favorite Books of 2020

2020 was a difficult year for everyone, but Quarantine allowed all of us booklovers to “get our read on”. Which means we here at the Red Wing Public Library spent most of 2020 reading. What’s new about that, you ask? Well, all the 2020 new releases of course!

As 2020 ends, we thought we’d share our favorite books of the year for any of you who missed them.

Best books of 2019 – staff picks edition

It’s an annual semi-tradition (semi meaning I did it in 2017, forgot about it in 2018 and decided to do it again this year) that we who work at the library compile a list of the favorite books we read during the past year (2019, in this case). Each staff person picked 2 to 4 books (except for Megan!). The only rules were that it had to be either published or read in 2019 and it had to be one of our favorites. I’ve included either a review or staff comments. Hope you find something you like! I would note that an impartial determination, verified through Science™, found that my books are the best. You should ignore any comments by Kari and Megan to the contrary.
