MPLS, You Were Lovely
Posted by: Misha Stone


 In honor of my visit to Minneapolis/St. Paul this week, I want to do a little shout out to the downtown library in Minneapolis.  I was blown away by this library, its spaces, displays, collections and staff.  The children’s department was a real gem, and their vibrant, whimsical displays created by local firm Blue Rhino Studio were a delight.  I am sure that anyone who had the pleasure of visiting for PLA will say the same.
Even though the Minneapolis city system merged with the Hennepin Country system a year ago, I was still able to score some old-school “MPLS” shirts and baby blankets.  Score! 

But as any dutiful librarian on vacation, I scooped up every program flier and booklist I could find. 

Afterwards, I discovered that they have more booklists online.  Check out these booklists if your book group is looking for titles, or if you simply need to find some good reads.  Hennepin County also has a staff blog worth checking out called BookSpace.
