Staff 2011 Favorites

2010 was a great year for the Lake Bluff Library—we had a wonderful renovation, got a new director, said goodbye to our previous director Matt, and had some wonderful programming and events.  The Lake Bluff Library staff would like to share some of our favorite books and other materials that we read, watched, and listened to in 2011.
