Jolabokaflod (Book Flood) 2022

Jolabokaflod, or the Yule Book Flood, originated during World War II when foreign imports were restricted, but paper was cheap. Iceland could not support a year-round publishing industry, so book publishers flooded the market with new titles in the final weeks of the year and thus the tradition of exchanging books as gifts in December was born. Enjoy these titles that were shared by library staff and community members at the library's annual Book Flood.
