STATE OF THE LIBRARY  Watch for our annual report to the community this week.  We’ll have copies available in the library and online, as well as in local media sources.


JUST ARRIVED  Yann Martel, author of The Life of Pi, has just published a brand new novel.  You can find The High Mountains of Portugal on our shelves, or place a hold request for it if our copy is checked out. Iain Pears’s latest, Arcadia, is here, as is Lisa Gardner’s thriller Find Her.  Try out A Thousand Falling Crows a new mystery with a 1930s Western setting.  Looking for something new in history?  Delve into the chaos of war with Richard Engel’s new book on conflict in the Middle East, And Then All Hell Broke Loose, or learn more about US special operations in World War II with Donovan’s Devils.  Thinking of downsizing in a big way?  Check out Tiny House Living, and pair it with the 2013 documentary Tiny for even more inspiration.  In the children’s section we’ve added three more BabyLit board books based on Jane Eyre, Moby Dick, and The Secret Garden.
