Introducing: Judging Books By Their Cover

We are proud to announce the first installment of a new video series coming to the Avalon Free Public Library! Now it’s a well known fact that you should never judge a book by its cover, but here at the library we’re challenging that notion with a series we’re calling: Judging Books by their Cover. (super original, right?!)

Basically, we will be doing a critique of a book cover and will draw conclusions as to what we think the book could be about. Then, we will follow it up with an actual review of the book. At the end of each video, we compare our conclusions to figure out whether or not you can actually judge the book by its cover!

So check it out and let us know what you think! If you have suggestions as to which books we should review next, feel free to message the Avalon Free Public Library’s Facebook page, email us at, or tweet at us at @avalonlibrary!


A Deadly Measure of Brimstone by Catronia McPherson is now available at the Avalon Free Public Library’s online catalog and OverDrive. Check it out today!
