New to our Collection! 

Spring has arrived! It’s hard to imagine that just over a year ago at the same time we were welcoming in the new season, we were abruptly meet with COVID-19. Reflecting on the pandemic and this past whirlwind year, two new additions to our collection focus on the good that was found this past year but also remembering what we had to leave behind. New to Junior Non-Fiction, What Kids Did (Erin Silver) tells true stories of what kids around the world did to help others in response to the pandemic. New to Non-Fiction: singer, songwriter and bestselling author Alan Doyle’s new book, All Together Now, acts as a virtual Newfoundland pub. The book includes everything from adventures in foreign lands, an apparently filthy singalong in Polish, a real-life ghost story, and heartwarming reminiscences from another past world, childhood–all designed to put a smile on the faces of the isolated-addled.

New to Adult Fiction: James Patterson’s new book of true-crime thrillers, Murder Thy Neighbor; Phantom, the seventh book in Ted Bell’s Hawke series; How to Raise an Elephant, the twenty-first book in Alexander McCall Smith’s Ladies Detective Agency series; and Lazarus, the seventh book in Lars Kepler’s Linna series. New to the Grab Shelf: White Pines Summer (Sherryl Woods) and A Duke by Any Other Name (Grace Burrowes).
