We've all been through it this year. Some worse than others, but 2020 was hard for everyone. During the worst of the isolation the quarantine caused, many of us depended more than ever on books and movies and tv to keep our minds off of it. The staff are all dissapointed that, due to Covid restrictions, we can't put up our annual Staff Picks display to let people know what we were reading and viewing last year, but hopefully this virtual format will make a satisfactory replacement.
Click on any staff member's picture or avatar below to be taken to their page. Most of our picks come in three catagories this year. The first consists of books we loved last year. They are not necessarily books that were published last year, but they are all available in the MHLS catalog. The second is movies or television series we loved last year. Same rules apply. Click on any underlined title and most of the pictures to be taken directly to its record in the MHLS catalog. As more staff submit their picks, their pictures and pages will be added.
Since almost all of us live firmly in the 21st Century these days, some of us have included a third catagory for stuff we are streaming. Original programming from platforms like NetFlix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu for example. Due to the exclusive, proprietary nature of such broadcasts, in most cases recommendations in this catagory will notbe available in the MHLS catalog ond are unlikely to be for some time to come. We hope you enjoy our picks and we look forward longingly to times in which we can discuss such things in person again. Stay safe out there and enjoy the information you consume.
Any item summary or review not written by staff is taken from its MHLS record or from its wikipedia entry
