“A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle

“Water for Elephants” by Sara Gruen
|Ninety-something-year-old Jacob Jankowski remembers his time in the circus with Rosie the elephant as a young man during the Great Depression.
– Maggie Gosney, patron services assistant, Cold Spring Branch
“Harry Potter” by J.K. Rowling
“Game of Thrones” by George R.R. Martin
|I watched the HBO series before I read the books, and I still enjoy the novels (which is not usually the case when I have seen the show or movie).
– Kiki Dreyer Burke, PR manager
“Room” by Emma Donoghue
