    Hi, I’m Adam Hochstetler, manager of the Northside Branch. My favorite books are Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Freakonomics by Stephen J. Dubner, among many others. In addition to reading I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family and friends. Stop by – I'd love to show you what we offer at Northside.
