I am looking forward to the day when I can begin by telling you all the activities we have going in the library. While that’s not the case yet, here’s what we can offer you.  We’re open from 9-6 Monday through Friday and do curbside delivery at noon and 5 p.m. Please feel free to call us and let us know what you’d like delivered to your car. Also, download the Libby app on your phone and you can download ebooks and audiobooks free of charge. Many of you are taking advantage of that resource. You’ll need your library card number and your pin is your last name in all capital letters. Call us if we can help you. 

Just finished a delightful book, Miss Benson’s Beetle by Rachel Joyce. You may have read her earlier novel, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. Her new book begins in 1950 England. Marjorie Benson is a spinster teacher who has always dreamed of finding the Golden Beetle in New Caledonia. The book is filled with quirky and endearing characters. I laughed a lot and cried a little through this one. The overriding sentiment in the book is “don’t give up on your dreams.” 

February’s Library Reads arrived yesterday and the number one book is The Four Winds by Kristin Hanna. Hanna is the bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone. In this one, “Elsa, abandoned by her husband, leaves Texas with her children to save her young son from dust pneumonia. This is beautifully written historical fiction about a mother’s love and strength holding a family together as they leave the Dust Bowl and head west to fulfill dreams of green lands only to find themselves unwelcome and with conditions worse that what they left. This one’s for readers who enjoy historical fiction with unforgettable characters and who are fans of The Giver of the Stars and Cilka’s Journey. (2-2) Michelle Coleman

Always a sucker for a title with the word “library” or “bookstore” in it, I’m adding Janet Skeslien Charles’s The Paris Library to my to-read list. “This book offers parallel narratives, one set in WWII Paris and the other in the U.S in the 1980s, both featuring librarians and bookstore owners. Your patrons will love it. This is for fans of The Lions of Fifth Avenue and Sarah’s Key.” (2-9) Jennifer Schultz

Sarah Gailey’s new book is The Echo Wife. “This book asks questions about identity, morality, and genetics, and resists giving easy answers. “This book asks questions about identity, morality, and genetics and resists giving easy answers. The man Evelyn and Martine claim as ‘husband’ is lying dead. Gailey invites us to consider a world where clone technology is almost perfect, and its creations are regarded as little more than cattle. What happens when a clone rejects her programming? And what happens when a woman can’t resist the influence of her upbringing? This is for fans of Black Mirror and Orphan Black. (2-16) Krista Feick

Finlay Donovan is Killing It is by Elle Cosimano. “What a fun, enjoyable romp! Finlay Donovan is mistaken for a hit woman, a desperate wife hires her to kill her husband, and it gets crazy from there. This is an entertaining, hilarious distraction and is perfect for all Stephanie Plum fans out there.” (2-2) Rosemarie Borsody

The Kindest Lie by Nancy Johnson “begins on the eve of the 2008 election at a watch party hosted by Ruth and Xavier. Ruth must soon confess a secret; she had a child as a teenager, u walked away to begin a new life. When she returns to her hometown, she begins a friendship with a troubled 11-year-old white boy. Their connected paths are brilliantly told and explore these of race, money, and finding your way back home. This is for fans of Tayari Jones and Jacqueline Woodson.” (2-2) Ron Block

Happy reading! We’ll look for you in the library or at curbside.
