New Stuff for you

There’s always something new in the Homer Community Library. We anticipate having a book order come in later this month, but in the meantime, here’s a small selection of new items for your reading and viewing pleasure.

Our newest adult fiction includes Vanish by Tess Gerritsen, An Unexpected Song by Iris Johansen, and Dead Run by P. J. Tracy.

All Parts Together is an historical novel of the Civil War. As it is part two of a series, you might want to want until the backordered part one arrives. The series is written for young adults and above.

Our new DVDs are Love’s Long Journey, based on the book of the same name by Janette Oke, Hoot, and RV with Robin Williams.

We are open from 2 to 7 p.m. each weekday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. We will be closed Monday, September 4, Labor Day. Our phone number is 217-896-2121.

Good Reading Ahead

After a week of vacation in New Hampshire, getting caught up afterwards, and having the computer out of commission for a week, I’m finally getting caught up again.

The big news here is the potential move into a much nicer, newer and more spacious facility. It’s not a done deal yet, but we’re hopeful.

Meanwhile, there are new books on the shelves. In the adult fiction department there are:

The Rapture by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins
Copycat by Erica Spindler
Walking Lazarus by T. L. Hines
No Good Deeds by Laura Lippman
Telegraph Days by Larry McMurtry
Judge and Jury by James Patterson and Andrew Gross
There’s Something About Christmas by Debbie Macomber
Talk Talk by T. C. Boyle
Found by Karen Kingsbury
Gone by Lisa Gardner
Faithless by Karin Slaughter
The Island by Heather Graham

Two others are
Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots by Sharon Lovejoy, a book about gardening with children
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer, for the young adults

Our new DVDs are:
The Water is Wide, based on the book by Pat Conroy
The Shaggy Dog with Tim Allen
