In light of the numerous cybersecurity incidents of 2017, on this year's Data Privacy Day it seems all the more important that we examine our privacy habits and best practices for staying safe online. Data Privacy Day is run by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), and serves as a platform for raising awareness about the importance of privacy and good online safety habits—for people and businesses.

What Should I Read Next? Staff Picks from the Ground Floor

Need a book for the road trip, the beach, or the pool? Try our Staff Picks for Teens. Better yet—come see us in person in The Ground Floor at the Main Library, the Ellettsville Branch, or on the Bookmobile. We love talking about books, and can help you find one that makes you laugh, cry, or get transported to a far-off world (or all three!).

Becky: "I loved The Hate U Give—the story pulled me in quickly and had an emotional punch. My cry count ended up at twelve. The characters felt real, the dialogue was fast-paced, and the plot was very intense. SO GOOD! Have you read it yet? Try the audiobook!"
