Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.

We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

When Calls the Heart [DVD]

My staff pick is the television series, When Calls the Heart. One of the main characters is Elizabeth Thatcher, a teacher in the rugged mining town of Hope Valley, in Canada. The town is aptly named because they seem to never lose hope regardless of the numerous obstacles they face and overcome. It is a very inspiring, family-friendly story. Since my degrees are in education, I enjoy positive movies and television episodes about teachers and school – regardless of their era.

If When Calls the Heart interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
