Your New Favorite Reading List for the Rest of 2022

While the summer is almost over, and we are likely all a little bummed about that, fall is the perfect time to compile a list for your favorite books to snuggle under a blanket and crack open! Winter in Alpena can be rough, but a good book can always pull your mind away from the snow flurries and blistering wind of the outdoors. Our Alpena County George N. Fletcher Library is an amazing place to escape and snuggle into a nook to read away the cold days, and lucky for us, they have compiled two great lists of the top books for adult readers and the top books for young adult readers for the rest of 2022.

*One Italian Summer  by Rebecca Serle

Our Alpena County George N. Fletcher Public Library here in Downtown Alpena holds all of these titles and many more for our community to enjoy. There is so much to discover and use to grow your mind in the library, and these top titles are a great way to get started on some engaging stories as we head into the fall and winter months! 

The library also has a kid’s section with great picture books and toys laid out and they have a teen section so each member of the family no matter how young or old can enjoy their time whenever you visit the library. There are so many ways that you can enjoy the library and there is a story there for everyone. Using these lists of top books, we hope that the community will come downtown to enjoy the library and all that it has to offer!
