LIBRARY CORNER | 03/26/21 |



Beginning April 10, we’re resuming Saturday hours from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.  It’s good to feel like we’re edging back toward normal.

The Friends of the Library annual luncheon is Friday, April 9, from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. You have a choice of Crawfish Bisque or Taco Soup with dessert and drink for $10. Tickets are on sale now in the library and must be purchased by April 5. All meals this year are take out. Proceeds benefit the library. The Friends group does so much for the library, including providing money for Summer Programs. 

Book Club begins again April 15 at 6 p.m. We can’t meet in person yet, so we’ve decided to do Zoom meetings until we can all get back together. The April book is The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles. This wonderful piece of historical fiction tells the story of the American Library in Paris during World War II. The plot moves back and forth from WWII to today. Call or send me your email address and we’ll include you in the Zoom meeting. 

Natalie’s Preschool Story Time will be back in swing Tuesday, April 6, at 11 a.m. She has so many plans for our little people, including planting their own garden! Bring your preschooler for great stories and activities.

Four Hall of Fame authors are featured in the April Library Reads list, including Jennifer McMahon with her book, The Drowning Kind. “The waters of Brandenburg Springs are said to have miraculous curative properties, but rumor has it that the healing always comes with a price. When Jax’s sister drowns in a pool filled with the spring’s water, she must discover the truth behind the legends. This is a great, creepy supernatural thriller.” (4-6) Mara Bandy Fass

The Good Sister is a novel by Sally Hepworth. “Rose and Fern have a strong sisterly bond, but their dark secrets may bind them more strongly than they think. How far would you go to protect your sister? Dark and compelling, this psychological suspense story has a taut pace and plenty of twists to keep readers guessing.” (4-13) Jen Chzourk

Joshilyn Jackson’ s latest is Mother May I. “Bree is a suburban mom with a lot on her plate. Her life changes when her baby is kidnapped and she has to complete a series of tasks to get her child back. This is the perfect kind of psychological thriller, a scorching page turner featuring a rocking plot and intense character development.” (4-6) Cari Dubiel

Circling the Sun by Paula McLain is one of my favorite books, so I’m looking forward to her new book, When the Stars Go Dark. “In 1993, troubled detective Anna returns to her hometown, where a girl has gone missing. As Anna helps search for the girl, both their pasts are revealed. This is a beautifully written, haunting thriller offering a fascinating look at how missing cases were handled pre-internet.” (4-13) Alissa William

Lilly just finished and recommends Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian. “This is a ‘teen’ book that is an intriguing read for adults, too. Labeled Fantasy, this book is more about life and where you place your loyalty and trust. It’s a reminder of slavery in America and the Nazi regime in Germany, but it’s not all dark. It’s more about finding your strength to do what is right, even when the line is blurry.”

The Masterpiece Theatre remake of All Creatures Great and Small just finished its first season on PBS. It is absolutely wonderful and made me want to reread the series. Gaylon and I began listening to the first audio book as we drove home last week from Branson. We laughed and cried all the way home. The narrator is the actor who plays James Herriot. Listening to this book was like visiting with an old friend. If you aren’t familiar with the books, I can’t think of any others I would recommend more than these. They are treasures. By the way, we have the first season DVD in the library. 

Grab a good book and enjoy this beautiful spring weather!
