Love is in the air at the library! To celebrate Library Lover's Day, our staff have found the best contemporary and historical romance reads from our collection.

Pack your beach bag and escape into romance with titles from a new generation of authors such as Elena Armas, Abby Jimenez and Casey McQuiston.

Prefer to step back in time? Settle in with a series from favourite authors Mary Balogh, Eloisa James or Julia Quinn.

Visit us during February to pick up one of our romance reads bookmarks, and you can always ask staff for tips on finding titles you will love.
