Idaho Family Read Week
Winter has settled in and we have all kinds of programs lined up to keep you busy! Thursday November 20 we are celebrating Idaho Family Reading Week with a program at 6:30 for area families. Bring the family in to build a community of readers at 4 different stations. We have a lot of materials but need your imagination! Snacks will be provided. Parents must attend with their children.
Book discussion
Monday, November 24 we will discuss the book The Lives of a Cell by Lewis Thomas. Homemade soup, bread and dessert will be served at 5:30, our discussion with Steven Hall of Idaho State University will begin at 6:00. Books are available for check out at the library.
Class in pastry making
Tuesday, November 25 we are offering a class in pastry making. The cost for the class is $8.00, bring a rolling pin and pie tin if you are able, and learn three different methods of making pie crust. Participants will make a pie to take home and bake, just in time for Thanksgiving. We appreciate Doug Plass for teaching this class.
Library closures
The library will be closed Thanksgiving Day and the following Friday. We have several holiday programs lined up for December and plenty of programming for the rest of the winter months to help keep cabin fever at bay.
New Books
Not only do we have programs lined up, but we also have new books, e-books, audio books, and movies to keep you entertained through the long winter. New on the non-fiction shelf are Blue-Eyed Boy: A Memoir by Robert Timberg, What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe, The Homing Instinct: Meaning and Mystery in Animal Migration by Bernd Heinrich, and In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette by Hampton Sides.

New adult fiction includes The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain, The Right Thing by Amy Conner, Lucky Us by Amy Bloom, The Children Act by Ian McEwan and The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters. We also have three of the five books on the short list for the National Book Award: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, and Redeployment by Phil Kay.

New Books from the Libri Foundation
The library was a recent recipient of a Libri Foundation Books for Children grant. Soon we will have approximately 70 new books for young listeners and beginning readers, middle and intermediate readers. Our community sponsor for the grant is the Florence Mahoney Foundation. Look for more news on the new books early next year!
Happy Thanksgiving from the Stanley Community Library Board of Trustees and staff.
