Introducing Featured Collections on

Community and solidarity--with love from ICPL Librarians are expert homebodies. Stacks of books cover our coffee tables and nightstands. Our book shelves may be neat and orderly or chaotically filled with our latest treasured finds. Cultivating and supporting the life of the mind is our purpose and calling. Staying home and enjoying life should be a piece of cake, right?

If only it were that easy. We might have all the entertainment options at our fingertips, but no one is immune to the fear and uncertainty the coronavirus pandemic has caused. Dear readers, you are not alone. We are with you.

It pains us that in-person browsing of the Library collections is not a zero-risk activity. We are actively trying to create ways for you to find something you will love on our shelves. Our latest endeavor is the new Featured Collections tool on our home page. These Featured Collections lists highlight available books about popular topics, which you can conveniently and safely browse from home. 

You may have stumbled across our October horror stories list, or our "cozy" books last month. This month, may your days be merry and bright with these laugh-out-loud funny picks.  

You’ll find the following:

  • Hilarious essays, biographies, and other nonfiction stories in our Beyond Bossypants list.
  • Award-winning and notable comedy films in our Comedy DVDs list.
  • Funny books for kids of all ages in our Laughs for Littles list.
  • Humorous fiction from all genres in our Funny Fiction list.
  • Guides to role-playing games that support online campaigns in our roll PLAY list. (You bet socially distanced D&D is a thing!)
