New at the Library this week:
Many are familiar with James Patterson as an author. He writes mystery, young adult fiction, thriller, comedy, realistic fiction, romance and science fiction, many with co-authors. His Maximum Ride series has been popular with young adult readers and we have a new one titled “Hawk” that ties in with that series.
New adult fiction titles are “The Silence” by Kendra Elliot, second book of the Columbia River Series; “The Evening and the Morning” by Ken Follett; “City of Girls” by Elizabeth Gilbert; “Emerald Horizon” by Jean Grainger; “The Last Story of Mina Lee” by Nancy Jooyoun Kim; “Dead and Married” by Donna J. Kelly; “Bitter Pill” by Fern Michaels; “Coast to Coast Murders” by James Patterson; “Beg, Borrow, or Steal” by Anne Marie Rodgers; “The House of Broken Angels” by Luis Alberto Urrea; and “One by One” by Ruth Ware.
New large print adult fiction are “Anxious People” by Fredrik Backman;; “The Last Town” and “Wayward” by Blake Crouch, two more volumes in the Wayward Pines Series; “One Last Breath” by Lisa Jackson; “An Absence So Great”, “The Memory Weaver” and “One More River to Cross” by Jane Kirkpatrick; “Royal” by Danielle Steel; and “A Nantucket Wedding” by Nancy Thayer.
New magazines this week are Family Tree, Country Living, Country Magazine, Family Handyman, Time, People, Natural History, North Dakota Living, Reader’s Digest, American Patchwork & Quilting and Scandinavian Press.
The Heart of America Library is now open to the public and will return to our regular operating hours. There are some guidelines, and we ask the cooperation of patrons:
If you are sick or feeling unwell please do not come to the library – opt for delivery or curbside pickup.
If you would rather not come into the library, we will continue to do delivery and curbside pick-up.
If you would like to come into the library we will be here for regular hours. Patrons are encouraged to select items and leave in a timely manner.
Social distancing is encouraged. Use the sanitizer unit on the small table by the entrance when you enter the building.
Please put all returns in the book drop outside. Items will continue to be quarantined for a week.
When checking out items, put each item through the opening in the plexi-glass dividers, allowing them to be scanned. The employee will not be touching the item, only scanning.
Only two public computers will be available. Only adult usage for business purposes…no games, etc.
