What’s new? New best sellers on our shelves include Tailspin by Catherine Coulter, Rogue by Danielle Steel, Sail by James Patterson, Fearless 14 by Janet Evanovich, 7th Heaven by James Patterson, Forbidden by Beverly Lewis - the continuation of her latest Amish series, Whole Truth by David Baldacci, 3rd Circle by Amanda Quick, and Sunday at Tiffany’s by James Patterson. We have four new large print novels, Land of My Heart and To Dream Anew by Tracie Peterson, and The Coming Storm and A Promise for Ellie by Lauraine Snelling.

In May and June, we added 342 donated items to our collection. We are grateful to all those who have donated books and videos, and to Christine Tarrant, who has helped with the cataloging.

We have held six sessions of the Summer Reading Program, with two more to go. The girls and boys have learned about and played games from the past, using materials children might have used way back when. The children also have read many books this summer. Children who read in the summer have an easier time when school begins again.
Sue Jones has been a great help with the program.
