In addition to our "READ" Poster Photo Booth, we have displays of "Books that Changed Lives" here at the Main Library. They are books chosen by library staff and Worcester community leaders, and will be up all week for National Library Week! 

Check out our Pinterest board with these books during the week as we continue to add them. Did a particular book change your life? Leave a comment here and we will add it to the board!
