December 31, 2019

With only a few hours remaining in 2019, another year is about to come to a close. Before we are thrust into a new year and a new decade, staff members at the Marathon County Public Library (MCPL) are taking a look back on the books they read over the past 12 months and selecting their favorites.

This year’s list features 26 books that MCPL employees say were their favorite of the year (along with a few runners-up). This diverse list includes adult fiction and nonfiction, youth nonfiction, best-sellers, and titles by both well-known and up-and-coming authors.

In addition to our own picks, we’d also like to know – what was your favorite book that you read this year? Let us know in the comments.

Of course, all of the titles mentioned below are available for check out at your local Marathon County Public Library location. To request a title, click on any of the book covers below or contact your local MCPL location.

Happy New Year from all of us at MCPL!
