Cast your vote for your Favorite Organizing Books!

What was the most interesting, helpful book you read this year on organizing and increasing productivity? Or, are there titles on your wish list that you would like to read? It could be that you've run across books like these in your client's home or business. Be in the know about what books are inspiring people to seek the services of Professional Organizers and Productivity Consultants. We would love to include your favorite books in our library. Email your recommendations to library@napo-az.com.

Because January is GO Month, the Library will next be available at the February Chapter meeting. If there is a book you would like before then or if you have any questions, email library@napo-az.com and put in your request. And if you have a book checked out that needs to be returned, please bring it to the February meeting.Thanks! - Deb Lawrence, NAPO-AZ Librarian
