Library News April 18, 2023

Hello Spring! will greet you when you walk into the library. We have an array of springtime books on display to check out with your youngster. From spring babies, to spring flowers, to spring cleaning; you will enjoy reading these springtime books with your child.

The puzzle is complete. The scene is a lovely bridge with a lazy river flowing beneath it and flowers all around. A new one will be out on the table soon, please help us fit all the pieces together.

On the new books shelf we have several new adult fiction and a couple of non-fiction books for your enjoyment. One that looks especially intriguing to this librarian is the newest book by C.J. Box in the Joe Pickett series called Storm Watch. It is a bout a lawman in Wyoming who is investigating a remote high-tech facility. If you like a mystery, this one is for you.

There is still time to read the book for the next book discussion. Get your copy of Redhead by the Side of the Road by Anne Taylor. We’ll discuss on May 2, 2023 at 10 a.m. This book is all about perception and forgiveness. And don’t worry about not knowing what is discussed, you get all the questions with the book!
