WEEKLY QUOTE “Indoors or out, no one relaxes in March, that month of wind and taxes, the wind will presently disappear, the taxes last us all the year.” – Ogden Nash, American poet  (Tax day used to be March 15th – now we have one month more to file.)


LEPRECHAUNS  Help us solve a mysterious (and kelly-green-tinged) break-in at the library this Thursday, March 17th, at 5 PM.  Rumor has it there may be many pots of gold at the end of the mystery – or at least some candy.


NINJAS  The ninjas have returned, and they’ve hidden eggs all over the library.  Bravely face down their challenges, earn your training certificate, and find out all their secrets next Saturday, the 26th, at 11 AM.

REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Story Time for ages 3 – 6, with picture books and crafts, is Wednesday at 10:30 AM.  Drop-in computer help will be this Saturday the 19th from 11 – 12 PM and next Tuesday the 22nd from 6 – 7 PM.  Movie Night is Thursday the 24th at 5:30 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our programming.


JUST ARRIVED  Interested in realistic young adult fiction?  Why not try one of our new books?  Take a wild ride with It’s All Your Fault, about a “good girl” dragged into the world of her movie-star cousin; peruse Peas and Carrots, featuring a teen trying to fit in to her new foster family, or get lost in a story of dealing with mental illness in The Memory of Light.  For those teens who prefer fantastic stories, we have selections such as The Shadow’s Curse and Bleeding Earth.  Finally, there’s a new autobiographical graphic novel available: Dare to Disappoint: Growing up in Turkey, by Özge Samancı.  We’ve also recently added four new books to help improve your home inside and out: From Trash to Treasure, DIY Projects, DYI Household Hacks, and the two-in-one volume Wood Pallet Projects for Beginners & Woodworking.  For a good read, turn to our fiction section and some of our latest purchases.  The Unfortunate Englishman is a spy tale set in the 1960s, while Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo takes a husband and wife on a cross-America roadtrip with their adopted son.  The latest 44 Scotland Street novel has also arrived, so drop in and check out The Revolving Door of Life.
