Summer Reading begins June 7! If you haven’t registered your children for the Reading Club and Summer Fun, come in and do so. You can look forward to in-house programs through the end of June and then Take and Makes in July. Also, keep your eyes peeled for Story Walks in the parks.

June 24-26 are the dates for the Biggest Ever Friends of the Library Book Sale. It’s so big we’re having it at the Civic Center. Donations are still being accepted through Friday, June 11. Please bring us your gently used books, DVDs and CDs. We can use all the help we can get, so if you’d like to volunteer to work at the sale, drop by and get your name on a list. All proceeds benefit the library.

Six Hall of Fame Authors made the Library Reads List this month. Included in that list is Laura Lippman with her book, Dream Girl. “Poor Gerry Anderson: esteemed novelist, confined to his highrise after a freak accident, besieged with assistants and badgered by his ex. Gerry sees himself as a victim, but not all agree, and someone is taking murderous measures to bring him to task. Who’ll outsmart whom in this game of cat and mouse?” (6-22) Lori Hench

Also on the list is Taylor Jenkins Reid’s Malibu Rising. “Four celebrity children of Mick Riva, a famous singer, throw a massive party that ends in a fire and leaves family secrets exposed. Reid skillfully goes back and forth in time to fill in the background story of the entire Riva family, beautifully bringing each character to life.” (6-1) Cathy Branciforte

If you haven’t read the Ruth Galloway mysteries by Elly Griffiths, start with number one and begin a wonderful journey through her series. Her newest is The Night Hawks. “In the thirteenth Ruth Galloway mystery, the forensic archeologist returns to familiar ground in Norfolk, where she’s accepted a post at a local university. A dead body is found nearby and soon Dr. Galloway is back on the case in a satisfying story full of surprise twists and familiar faces.” (6-29) Meredith Snepps

In the Road Trip by Beth O’Leary, “exes Dylan and Addie are on their way to a friend’s wedding, and their rocky relationship is traced through alternating POVs from past and present. With interesting character development and several genuinely funny moments, this is a perfect read for your own summer road trip.” (6-1) Jennifer Sullivan 

Riley Sager’s new one is Survive the Night. “In the 1990s, Charlie, a traumatized woman who sees life like a movie, heads home from college. After agreeing to share a ride with a stranger, she begins to fear that she’s in danger. With heart-pounding suspense, nostalgic film references, and a locked room setting, this is a fun throwback thriller.” (6-29) Vanessa Phillips

The final Hall of Fame Author is Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Her latest is When Stars Collide. “Quarterback Thad and opera star Olivia embark on a weeks-long PR campaign for an upscale watch company. Both successful in their careers, they each have a strong sense of themselves, which makes for a refreshingly toned-down take on the hero-to-the-rescue trope in this unputdownable read.” (6-29) Kamet Schneider

The weather’s perfect for a trip to the library. Happy reading!
