» A message from the Dallas Public Library

KERA has invited the Dallas Public Library to recommend books on themes of current relevance, to mark our shared commitment to promoting reading and lifelong learning.

On the carousels below, you can:

• Browse themed, librarian-picked book suggestions
• Click the titles to learn more about each book
• Reserve any you find interesting.

Dallas residents with a free library card (get one here) can reserve books using the carousels, then pick them up at their chosen branch location.

Or, if you live in another area, these lists can introduce you to good books on trending topics to explore in your own library.

The book themes and recommendations on this page will change periodically.
