March Madness Book Tournament!
Voting starts March 1
We chose 64 titles from our collection that had the highest circulation numbers in 2022. You’ve read them, now it’s time to vote on them! For 6 weeks, you will have the opportunity to vote for the books you think are most deserving of the title “March Madness Champion.” The books that have the most votes will advance to the next round, until we have a winner.

Voting will begin on Wednesday, March 1.
Stop by the Library to cast your vote each week or vote online via Instagram. Winning titles advancing through to the next round will be announced each Monday on the Library's Instagram. The person who most correctly predicted the bracket outcome will win a prize!
