GREAT READS: Orange County Public Library’s May book selections

-

SPONSORED: “Great Reads” is a regular roundup of books that the Orange County Public Library System thinks you should peruse that month.

Moms have our full respect year-round, but with current events that respect is ramped up. Where would we be without you, Mom? In honor of Mother’s Day, these reads chosen by Orange County Library System staff have a common theme: moms, like you.

It’s important to note that library staff has been careful to select reads that are available in digital format, so you’re able to check them out while our buildings are closed. Home delivery was temporarily suspended during the pandemic but is scheduled to reopen this month.
