Happy World Book Day! 🌎📖
Obviously, this is one of our favorite days of the year! To help you celebrate, today's Tuesday Titles post offers you a few fun book-themed titles.

(Here at the Hesston Public Library, we get to see a LOT of books. And sometimes the titles of those books really make us stop and think...or laugh...or roll our eyes...or check out the book! So we thought we'd start sharing some of those with you. Watch for our upcoming Tuesday Titles posts each week. Which of those books might you want to read?) #WorldBookDay #WorldBookDay2019
