We work hard here at the Vermillion Public Library to provide library services to the members of the Vermillion community. Libaries are places of joy and discovery and it’s always heartwarming to read essays that discuss the important role that libraries play in the lives of people everywhere. A friend had come across this essay by Zadie Smith in the New York Review of Books some time ago and recommended it:
We have a three of Zadie Smith’s books here in the library in Adult Fiction:
White Teeth: A Novel (2000)
On Beauty: A Novel (2005)
NW: A Novel (2012)
We’re very proud of Joyce Moore, our Youth Services Librarian, who just won the New Librarian of the Year Award at the South Dakota Library Association Conference in Huron, SD! Congratulations for a well deserved honor!!
