Folklore & Fairy Tales

Have you been playing Taylor Swift’s latest album Folklore on repeat since it was released?  (You can borrow it via Hoopla Digital, here.) I have, and because I’m a big fan of fairy tale-esc imagery, all things found under the dewey decimal system number 398.2, and tales of lore, I have been loving it.  If you adore all things Folklore and want more, check out these folklore-esc reads.  All you need is your library card.
