PopeStNick: Heavenly City

I like to occasionally recommend books of different genres: biographies, crafts, art, music, historical fiction, etc. Let's get good Catholic books not only onto our library's Religion shelf, but other shelves as well. It is good to make purchasing requests for books that find themselves into other categories of the Dewey Decimal System. Today's recommendation is an architecture book.

Check to see if this title is already in your library's catalog. If it is, put a hold on it and check it out. If not, fill out a patron request form right away. This can usually be done online at your library's website.
