My Librarian Wendy R.

“It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.” 
- Oscar Wilde

I love to read, and I spend a lot of time doing it - so I want my books to be entertaining.  I love books that make me laugh (or cry) or catch me by surprise.   I especially like books that make me think. While I prefer to read hard copy books, I enjoy listening to audiobooks as well, especially when I'm on a long drive, or in the wee hours of the night when I can't sleep.  
With our Belleville Library card we have access to thousands of titles, so if you need help finding one that is NOT in our collection, ask me about electronic books or Interlibrary Loans!
