Recently we have been evaluating the books in the 700’s to see what is checking out (or not), what is falling apart, and where we may need to order more books on a certain topic. I’ve been working on the photography books and have discovered some really great reads! We have tons of books about taking great photos, editing photos, and books about famous photographers. Here are a few that stood out to me when I took a closer look at this section of our nonfiction collection.
