Please remember that you can complete the #RogersReads prompts in any order using eBooks, audiobooks, or print copies of a title. We are excited to see what you select to fulfill this prompt!
Read a Book about What You Wanted to “Grow Up To Be” When You Were a Kid
We weren’t quite sure what you personally wanted to grow up to be, so we asked some of our staff members to explore some of the options. Titles like When I Grow Up by Julie Chen, When I Grow Up by Al Yankovic, and When I Grow Up by Mercer Mayer prove that this is a popular question. Below are some titles, both fiction and non-fiction, about what your library staff wanted to grow up to become.
The Baker Street Letters by Michael Robertson, The Pinks: The First Women Detectives, Operatives, and Spies with the Pinkerton National Detective Agency by Chris Enss, and Conan Doyle for the Defense by Margalit Fox.
We are looking forward to a year full of challenging new reads with you!
