As the year comes to a close, our librarians wanted to share their favorite books, movies, television series, and music that either came out in the past year, or that we just discovered in 2014. Every one of these items is available in the Kansas City Public Library collection.

Sit back with some nog, pick up one of these books, and rediscover the joys of the season.
And then maybe take a BB gun to your neighbor's inflatable winter wonderland in the front lawn...
