Poetry
April is National Poetry Month. Stop by the library the evening of Thursday, April 24 for a poetry participation event. Share your own poetry or personal favorite. Don't have the nerve to share? Come in and listen. John Phillips will be hosting the event, beginning at 6:30 pm.
Programs
Friday evening (April 25) at 7:00 we will show the movie The Book Thief. Popcorn will be served, and there is no admission charged. The movie is rated PG-13 and is not recommended for children under that age. We will discuss the book by Markus Zusak, and compare the book and movie on Monday, April 28. We will serve homemade soup, bread and dessert at 5:30. The discussion will begin at 6:00.
Donate your DVDs
We are still asking for your donations of DVD's to start a movie collection available for check out. Get that spring cleaning done, and make some room on your shelves by storing your DVD's on our shelves!
Ideas for upcoming programs?
Do you have a great idea for a library program? Please let our staff know and we will do our best to see it happen.
Our magazine collection
Are you aware of our magazine section? We have a great variety of magazines available, including Smithsonian, Bon Appétit, Smithsonian's Air and Space, Better Homes and Gardens, Consumer Reports, Mother Jones, National Geographic, Popular Science, Rolling Stone and Time. There is truly something for all. We also have National Geographic Kids and Little Kids.
New books
New books this month include Harlan Coben's latest thriller, Missing You, Apple Tree Yard, a psychological thriller by Louise Doughty, and The Martian by Andy Weir, the surprise bestseller survival thriller that is being called the Robinson Crusoe of the twenty-first century. The Secret of Magic by Deborah Johnson returns us to Mississippi, 1945. World War II is over, and a different battle is starting to brew in the South. Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain, has this to say about Gabrielle Zevin's eighth book, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry, "A wonderful, moving and endearing story of redemption and transformation that will sing in your heart for a very, very long time."
