We're teaming up with the Omaha Public Library to help readers find new books — or at least books new to them. Every other week in this space, library patrons will tell us what they've been reading lately, and why we might want to read it too.
This week's Take a Page patron is Stephen M. Swartz from Benson Library, 6015 Binney St. Swartz, 67, is originally from Des Moines. He has lived in Omaha since 1965, when he came to Creighton University to complete his undergraduate degree and law school. Swartz retired as a county judge in 2011, and now dedicates much of his time to reading and volunteering at the Nebraska Online Legal Self-Help Center and Nebraska Humane Society. He typically reads mysteries and finishes two to three books a week.
