Fall into a Good Book

What makes a good fall book? Is it a back-to-school book? Does it involve gourds or apple orchards or changing leaves? A book that hits stores in September or October? A perennial favorite you want to cozy up with over a hot drink? An atmospheric and creepy read, maybe set in the woods or an old house? Whatever your fall reading preference, we’ve got something for you at Meinders Library.
