In recognizing National Library Week I thought it might be interesting to share Duggan Library staff’s favorite novels of all time. So, here goes:
Kelly, our Serials and Government Documents librarian, favorite novel is An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser.
Alynza, the library’s Periodicals and Cataloging Assistant, shares that her favorite YA novel is Jane Austen’s, Emma.
The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic, is the number one fiction choice for Patricia, our Circulation Assistant.
Michael, Duggan’s Access Services librarian says his favorite work of fiction is All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque.
Mary, our Acquisition Assistant, replied to my request with The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Heather, the Coordinator of Information Services librarian, relates that her number one novel is Charlotte Brontë’s, Jane Eyre.
Angela, the new Archives librarian, said that it is difficult to decide but ultimately chose The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon.
Robert, the Photo Archivist at the library apparently isn’t a big fan of fiction so he countered with Howard Zinn’s, A people’s history of the United States.
Returning to works of fiction, I offer Pearl S. Buck’s, The Good Earth, as my favorite novel.
There you have it – Duggan Library staff favorites. I hope you enjoyed getting to know us a little better during National Library Week and feel free to comment on the blog with your own favorite novel of all time.
