Library Finds! (TF Edition – Pop Science!)

Happy first day of the semester! For this week’s Library Finds! Theresa picked out some of our “popular reading” science titles. Just because it’s science doesn’t mean you should assume it’s going to be dry and unreadable – we have a lot of great science books that are engaging and that will definitely keep your attention. Here are seven to get you started 🙂
