Top Ten Picks of 2017 From Albany County Public Library Staff

Dec 19, 2017

Inspired by the LibraryReads #libfaves17 Twitter campaign, Albany County Public Library Staff did a countdown of their favorites from 2017. Anything released in 2017 that the library circulates was eligible, regardless of format. All staff received an email asking them to contribute to a library-wide countdown.

“This was a fun way to allow all staff to share their favorites with the community,” said Megan Richardson, ACPL Adult Services Librarian, “and it also advertises that everyone on staff cares about providing quality materials for them to checkout and enjoy.”

The top ten selections are in the image at right, and you can see all the staff picks here.

The staff who weighed in were:

  • Nathan Bender, Technical Services Librarian
  • Tyler Brown, Adult Services Specialist
  • Bernie Burr-Wilkin, Interlibrary Loan Specialist
  • Cassandra Hunter, Adult Services Specialist
  • Seth Leininger, Facility Maintenance Specialist
