Reader recommended

Patrons and staff are enthusiastic about these titles.

“The Debatable Land” by Graham Robb is part memoir, part irresistibly interesting history of a patch of land between Scotland and England.

“The Martin Archives” tells the story of the world-famous acoustic guitar company based in Nazareth. Immersing yourself in either one is a great way to pass a lazy summer day.
