WRITER OF THE WEEK  Tennessee Williams, one of America’s best playwrights, was born March 26, 1911.  You can check out his best-known plays from the library, including The Glass Menagerie and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.


CLOSING EARLY  The library will be closing at noon this Friday, March 30th.  We will be open on Saturday as usual, from 9 AM – 3 PM.


EGG HUNT  Ninjas have hidden eggs all over the library.  To find them, you must become a ninja yourself.  Join our training school this Saturday the 31st at 11 AM for fun games and sweet treats.

APRIL EVENTS  The Friends of the Library Book Sale will take place from Thursday the 5th through Saturday the 14th.  For adults, we’ll be sharing talk and treats on Wednesday the 11th, practicing the art of decoupage on vases on Thursday the 12th, and coloring together on the 19th.  Toddlers can come to a rainy-day craft on Friday the 13th.  Drop-in computer help hours will be on Saturdays the 7th and 21st from 11 AM – 12 PM and Tuesday the 24th from 6 – 7 PM.  For all ages, we have Movie Night on Thursday the 19th and Family Book Club on Thursday the 26th.  April 9th – 14th is also National Library Week, so keep an eye out for some special celebrations.

JUST ARRIVED  Looking to follow a trail of clues this week?  We have some suggestions.  John Hush has a follow-up to 2009 novel The Last Child, titled The Hush; Steve Berry looks back into his hero Cotton Malone’s past with The Bishop’s Pawn; M. C. Beaton’s latest Hamish Macbeth mystery is Death of an Honest Man; and Lola Wicks returns in Gwen Florio’s Under the Shadows.  Joy Fielding’s The Bad Daughter features twists aplenty to keep the pages turning.  In Phillip Margolin’s The Third Victim, a defense attorney keeps secrets of her own, while the title character in Chris Bohjalian’s The Flight Attendant isn’t even sure what she’s hiding.  The Last Cowboys of San Geronimo, by Ian Stansel, is an old-style Western featuring murder and retribution, but set in modern times, and if you’re looking for murder in an out-of-this-world setting, try David Pedreira’s Gunpowder Moon
