2014 is now behind us, and that means it's a brand new year to start up some fresh programs or take a look at what we've been offering for awhile that you may not have noticed before!
Set up already for this month are two special story times with Cassie. Enjoy a Bedtime tale in your jammies at the library on January 13th, then on January 23rd while the kids are off from school for a Teacher Work Day, the family is invited into the library for fun times with Elephant and Piggie!
The Book Club will be kicking off their first 2015 discussion with We Were Liars by E. Lockhart before picking up The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout for February.
A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
The Burgess Boys: (Summary from GoodReads)
Haunted by the freak
accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob
Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls for New York
City as soon as they possibly could. Jim, a sleek, successful corporate
lawyer, has belittled his bighearted brother their whole lives, and Bob,
a Legal Aid attorney who idolizes Jim, has always taken it in stride.
But their long-standing dynamic is upended when their sister, Susan—the
Burgess sibling who stayed behind—urgently calls them home. Her lonely
teenage son, Zach, has gotten himself into a world of trouble, and Susan
desperately needs their help. And so the Burgess brothers return to the
landscape of their childhood, where the long-buried tensions that have
shaped and shadowed their relationship begin to surface in unexpected
ways that will change them forever.
Finally, to wrap up January, we're starting a new (and so far unnamed) Fiber Arts group for all of those who work with threads and yarns in their crafting. Anyone with interest in learning to take up a skill, or if you're just looking to be social or share your work, is welcome to stop by!
