New at the Library this week:
New in the library for adult fiction is “Christmas Cake Murder” by Joanne Fluke, another Hannah Swensen Mystery; and in nonfiction we have “Creating a Local History Archive at Your Public Library” by Jenn Carson, and “Get Your Community Moving: Physical Literacy Programs for all Ages”. We have also received a number of DVDs along with the course guidebooks from The Great Courses—educational, nonfiction filmed lectures on a variety of topics, to add to our Great Courses collection.
For the juniors we have “Lions & Liars” by Kate Beasley; “Toaff’s Way” by Cynthia Voigt; and “The 91-Story Treehouse” by Andy Griffiths, the 7th in the series. A new junior biography is “How to Build a Hug: Temple Grandin and Her Amazing Squeeze Machine” by Amy Guglielmo, about the autism advocate Dr. Temple Grandin who as a child didn’t like hugs but still wanted to be held – so she invented a hug machine. So come on in and check us out.
New magazines are Time, Country Living, Farm & Ranch, Quilter’s World, Taste of Home, Wood and North Dakota Living.
