"The Girl Next Door, by Jack Ketchum, is not a read for the faint of heart. If, dear reader, you are disturbed by graphic depictions of torture, mutilation, violence, or psychological trauma you might want to opt for some feel-good pulp novel from Nicholas Sparks or his ilk."

"Heller is an experienced travel and adventure writer who tackled fiction for the first time four years ago. His years spent writing about the outdoors surely show in this beautifully written new novel: his evocations of the landscapes of New Mexico and Colorado shimmer"

"Krueger offers no easy answers. His [characters] are flawed... But they are caring and authentic and thoughtful. In the end there is something so life-affirming in the world Krueger creates. His book is exquisitely graceful."

One of the great things about working in a library is that you get to track the books that everyday readers -- not reviewers, prize panels, or critics -- genuinely love, titles like The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah or All th...

"Anyone who has read one of Sarah Vowell's books knows how funny she is. Laugh-out-loud funny at times. But when it comes to American history, she knows her stuff.... By the close of this [book], I understood for the very first time just how much the French helped us win the War of Independence."

"I recommend this for anyone who can appreciate sharp and capable main characters who are up against a society that doesn't really respect them, but who do what needs to be done regardless."

"The highly-readable popular historian Nathaniel Philbrick tackles Benedict Arnold's tragic trajectory from "American Hannibal" to despicable traitor, juxtaposing Arnold's career with that of his fine commander, George Washington."

I have this thing for Benedict Arnold. I've been fascinated by him for years, primarily because of his amazing and heroic slog to Quebec through the wilderness of Maine and Canada at the start of the Revolutionary War (you ca...

2016 has certainly been an interesting year. For now let's forget politics, economics, and world events, and instead, let's focus on books! This month we asked staff across all library departments to share their favorite reads of 2016. Check them out on our blog!

"Even though much of the book is descriptive, Cooper introduces an engaging storyline and scenes of suspense."

“Beard is a master of the exquisite detail and one has to wonder at her powers of recollection and suspect some poetic license in the telling.”

"This novel was an unexpected treat that, as I unwrapped it, presented layer after layer of depth and complexity. From the point of view of either the predator or the prey, this story vividly portrays the grey areas of life and makes the reader ponder what it truly means to be free."

"The publication of Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan novels (a quartet) has been one of the biggest literary events of the century (granted, we're only sixteen years in, but still). . . . Ferrante creates an exquisitely detailed world that spans decades and brings Naples to life politically and culturally."

I love it when I go there! The staff are very friendly, the place is always clean, and is very high maintenance! Only 4 starts because of the hours, it would be nice if they closed at 7pm Monday-Thursday.

Itsa great.place, but.needs to have better hours. Open at nine am more often,as well as being open on Sunday year round. Think of the kid's, and those who work or have nothing to do.
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
UPDATE: Effective Sunday, July 10, 2016, the Library will be open on Sundays year round. See our hours at http://www.dubuque.lib.ia.us/94/Library-Hours. ORIGINAL REPLY: Thanks for your comments, Linda. Actually, the mayor and city council recently restored funding to the library for the coming fiscal year, which means we can add 117 additional hours of service. We're currently running a survey at http://www.dubuque.lib.ia.us/FormCenter/Home-3/Hours-Survey-98 to see where you'd like us to add these hours, like Thursday mornings or Sundays year round. This survey is open through May 15, 2016. If you could take a few moments to complete our survey, it certainly will help. Thanks again!

Great service. I'm also incredibly fond of how systematic it is as well as their Nerf wars.
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
Thanks, Jayme! We have Nerf Capture the Flag on the first Saturday of every month, so we hope to see you again soon.

I don't think I really appreciated this library until I moved away. This is a huge library with almost everything you could want. I highly recommend using the library system.

Hi, John. We recently made a considerable upgrade to our internet connection and were able to remove the bandwidth limits we had on video streaming. Come back and give us another try and please let us know if you still have trouble!
