The library offers a variety of books, DVDS, video games, magazines and more.
Here are the librarians’ favorite picks of Spring 2019!
Anne’s Pick: Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus
I’ve been bothering Lisa about buying this book since it came out in January and when it finally came in to the library I consumed it all in a day! This is Karen McManus’s second book– and I knew I had to read it as soon as I finished her first– One of Us is Lying–which is kind of a Breakfast Club/ Pretty Little Liars twist. Both were great, easy reads and kept me hooked from start to finish– can’t wait for her next one to come out!
Nancy’s Pick: The Library 100– Top Novels of All Time
Not long ago I found a list titled THE LIBRARY 100—TOP NOVELS OF ALL TIME. This is a list of the novels that more libraries have on their shelves than any others. I looked to see if I had read many of the books on the list. I have a long way to go before I can say I have read the 100 top novels of all time. I thought I would start by reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo, but it is checked out. I settled on The Last of the Mohicans. If you want to know what is on the list, ask about it at the Public Library.
Pat’s Pick: A Ghost Story
The blizzard was a great time to watch some movies since I usually don’t get time to watch them otherwise. One of those movies I watched was A Ghost Story. A Ghost Story is a strangely sad and wistful movie with few actors, minimal dialogue and some bizarre moments in it. It’s really difficult to describe, as you need to see it to understand what I mean. I really want to see it again sometime! I would also recommend the Netflix Series, Grace and Frankie which is fun irreverent and full of laugh inducing moments.
Lisa’s Pick: The Sinking of Vasa: a Shipwreck of Titanic Proportions by Russell Freedman
This children’s book The Sinking of the Vasa is a non-fiction picture book that describes the building of the mighty Swedish warship the Vasa. Didn’t know that Sweden was once a naval power? Well it wasn’t after the folly of the Vasa. Power, pride, and engineering recklessness all hidden for 100 years comes to light in this true story. With beautifully detailed, colored pictures and well researched facts, The Sinking of the Vasa illustrates everything children’s non-fiction can be. Mel’s Pick: Meet Scout!
