It’s Adult Storytime!

Following social distancing protocol means we will be home more than usual, meaning plenty of time to catch up with the books on our "For Later" shelf. But where to begin?

Listen to the two videos below for your very own storytime sampler-platter, in which an actor and an author read aloud. If you enjoy what you hear, you can download the book from the library, all from home!

To start off, here is a reading from Andrzej Sapkowski's The Last Wish by Henry Cavill. Get a taste for the text and escape into a fantasy world for the next few minutes, as you listen to the Witcher reading The Witcher:

Hooked yet? Check out our downloadable copies of The Witcher books here. Already read the whole series or still on hold for them? Check out this booklist: So You've Binged The Witcher Twice Already.

Loki may not have been the star of that story, but the God of Mischief appears throughout Norse Mythology.

Happy reading and stay safe, everyone!
