Welcome to Newburgh Free Library’s blog Inspirations: a blog for readers and viewers.
At the Newburgh Free Library we would like to connect our community to the books and movies we love as well as get feedback from you on the books and movies that you love and want to share with others.
Of course we plan on introducing new titles that are coming out on the shelves at NFL, but we also hope to connect you with a hidden gem or two – things that you might not have discovered on your own. At our new blog, look forward to reading about staff picks, patron picks, nonfiction, mystery, and the newest in street fiction. It’s all up for discussion in Inspirations.
