Top Books of 2018: Volunteer Edition

This week we’re kicking off a series about some of NHR’s favorite books from 2018. We can’t do that without mentioning our volunteer book club, which read titles like Fahrenheit 451, The Other Wes Moore, and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks; but unsurprisingly, our volunteers are voracious readers, so one book club could never fill their reading lives. Volunteers from each of our tutoring locations told us about their three (or four, or…six) favorite books from last year’s reading.

Volunteer Spotlight: Mike O.

Mike finds his greatest motivation for volunteering in fulfilling the Book Bank’s mission to get as many books out into the community as possible. He said, “I basically come here for the same reason I worked at the UNH Library for 17 years – I believe in helping to put books in people’s hands, often literally.”
