It’s every reader’s favorite time of year. December rolls around and every media outlet from NPR to the New York Times shares their best books of the year. We can check off those we’ve read, mostrar mais debate over the omissions, and add plenty of books to our to-be-read list for the following year!

This year, we surveyed MCPL staff about their favorite reads of 2023 and we’re sharing the results here and in our MCPL Readers’ Lounge Facebook group throughout the month of December and January. We’d love to hear your favorite reads of the past year—join us in the Facebook group and/or share your feedback on our website! If you’d like to see last year’s lists, check out our Best Books of 2022 page.
