5x5 Books Archive


5x5 Books was established in March of 2011 and ran through September 2016. The program provided young adults with 5 books each month that the Young Adult Specialist considered to be of a 5-star rating. The list below can also be viewed on Goodreads as a shelf in the new Teens Read @ DCL discussion group. During this time, young adults could submit suggestions in the Teen Zone at the Dickinson County Library. There is still a suggestion box in the Teen Zone for collection suggestions and feedback.
