READ at your Library!
For over 25 years celebrity READ posters have decorated public libraries across the United States. The first poster, created in 1985, featured comedian Bill Cosby, and since that time some of the best known faces in the country have graced them. Last fall the CSS Library caught four of our own luminaries reading, and asked them to share their favorite books with us.
