Garden At The Library

We know that the Pandemic isn’t over, but we’re inching our way back to some kind of normal in the library. Saturday hours will resume April 3. We’ll be open from 10 a.m. til 1 p.m. Please continue to wear your mask in the building.

Preschool Story Time resumes Tuesday, April 6, at 11 a.m. Ms. Natalie has some wonderful stories and programs planned for the little people. I think there may even be a garden in the works!

One of our patrons volunteered to lead a Zoom Book Club, beginning Thursday, April 15, at 6 p.m. If you’d like to join us, please send me your email address and I’ll be certain you get an invitation with the Zoom link. April’s book is The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles.  Here’s a peek at the next few books:

May=The Chanel Sisters by Judithe Little

June=We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker

July=Nature of Fragile Things by Susan Meissner

August=Bookish Broads by Lauren Marino

My email address is hthompson@mpcity.org. Let me know if you’d like to be included.

Jeanette has Summer Fun all mapped out, including Summer Reading Club for June and July, The month of June we’ll have Weekly Take and Makes. Then we’ll resume Programs at the Library in July. You’ll be able to enjoy Story Walks in local parks all summer. Get ready for a great summer in the library!

The Library Reads Hall of Fame designation honors authors who have had multiple titles appear on the monthly list. When their third title places on the list via library staff votes, the author moves into the Hall of Fame. This month there are five, including Talia Hibbert and her novel, Act your Age, Eve Brown. This is the third book in the series. “Eve Brown thinks she’s a failure, constantly flitting from one job to another. When her parents ask her to commit to something she runs—and ends up in a charming B&B, where the uptight owner desperately needs her help. This is a sweet, funny love story about learning to appreciate yourself.” (3-9) Beth DeGeer

In Peter Swanson’s Every Vow You Break, “Abigail deeply regrets succumbing to an illicit night with a stranger on the eve of her wedding When her husband takes her to a mysterious island for a lavish honeymoon, she’s shocked to see the man who seduced her. What follows is a horror story that will keep the reader glued to the page.” (3-23) Paul Lane

The Rose Code by Kate Quinn looks like a good one. “Sophisticated Osla, ambitious Mab, and timid Beth become friends while working as codebreakers at Blechley Park during World War II. The secrecy of their work has lasting effects on their lives. Years later, they are forced to forgive one another to unmask a traitor.” (3-9) Nanette Donohue

Martha Hall Kelly brings us Sunflower Sisters. “Kelly ends her trilogy tracing The Lilac Girls protagonist Caroline Ferriday’s family with a story centered in the Civil War era. Kelly weaves her careful research into a compelling novel with fascinating depth and a nod toward the impactful role of women throughout history.” (3-30) MarySue Waterman

Finally, we have Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs. “Mated werewolves Charles and Anna investigate a malevolent presence that has inexplicably made an entire community vanish in northern California. In this latest Alpha & Omega installment, Briggs again creates a vivid world where the common place and the supernatural reside together.” (3-16) Linda Tilden.

Don’s review this month is over the music history book, On the Road with the Oak Ridge Boys. “It’s an inspiring collection similar to Chicken Soup for the Soul. Perfect for country music lovers, the 2015 book expands on the Oak Ridge Boys doctrine: Do unto others. They’ve found that good works, honesty and integrity always comes back around with dividends always paid.” 

Enjoy this spring-like weather, drop by the library and grab a good book. Happy reading!
