Library Corner for the week of September 21, 2020

Updated 2020/10/01

Staff Change

Georgia Valentonis will no longer be working at the library. The Board and Staff extend our sincere wishes for success in her future ventures and thank her for her hard work since spring of 2017. We welcome our new library clerk Michele Sobering.

Loans: Books, movies, and magazines

The library’s loan periods have been changed to 3 weeks on all library materials during the pandemic to assist our patrons. Books, movies and magazine loans from our branch are all the same loan periods to keep accounts consistent.

The library is continuing to quarantine returns for 3 days before checking them in. That being said, there is a 3 day grace period on all materials. We are continuing to ask patrons to put their returns in the book drop outside during opening and closing hours.

Large Print Books

The library has recently received our large print rotation. We currently have 121 new titles added to our shelves. There are many different genres to choose from, we have something for everyone!

New Fiction

Shadows of the Dead is the newest in the Special Tracking Unit series by Spencer Kope. After a high-speed chase with police, a driver abandons his car on the edge of dense woods and escapes on foot into the forest. While searching the car, police find something unexpected in the trunk – a bound, unconscious woman clinging to life. She is not the first victim; in fact she is number eight!

The Lost and Found Bookshop by Susan Wiggs explores the meaning of happiness, trust and confidence. In the wake of a shocking tragedy, Natalie Harper inherits a charming but financially strapped bookshop in San Francisco where she uncovers the truth about her family, her future and her own heart.

A Good Neighborhood by Therese Anne Fowler is a gripping modern morality tale about two families and what happens when you try to do the right thing but it all goes wrong.
