SF-Inspired Fiction

It’s always fun to read a book and recognize the ins and outs of the city depicted. This month a selection of SF-inspired fiction is on display on the second floor of the library at the end of the stacks (look for the PA-PR column). It’s a mix of SF classics, mysteries, and young adult fiction.   

Happy reading!
