Caroline's First Picks

This year the Lethbridge Public Library is celebrating 100 years of serving the great city of Lethbridge. While the library is hosting some truly great events this year, my co-worker Jonathan Jarvie and myself thought, as Adult Services Librarians, that we could offer our own contribution to the celebrations.
