NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK Please join us to celebrate all things library-related this week. As a thank-you to our patrons we’ll have coffee and treats available every day, and children can search for our special Sophie rock to win prizes. There are no prizes for finding the real Sophie, but she would like it if you said “Hello” to her.
ADULT CRAFT Stop in to make a mixed-media cherry tree artwork this Thursday the 11th at 2 PM.
REGULAR PROGRAMS Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM. Stories and Songs, for ages 2 – 4, is on Saturdays at 10:30 AM. Please note that this Saturday the 13th will be the last Stories and Songs for the month; look for it to return in May, and join us for an Egg Hunt on the 20th. Call the library or check online for all of the details on all of our upcoming events.
JUST ARRIVED Learn about the bones in your body – how they came to be and what they’ve symbolized to different cultures – in Brian Switek’s Skeleton Keys. Find out more about the history of the Southwest in América: The Epic Story of Spanish North America, 1493-1898 by Robert Goodwin, and read about Hernando Colón, son of Christopher Columbus, who compiled an immense library, in The Catalogue of Shipwrecked Books, by Edward Wilson-Lee. Follow a copy of one of the world’s most famous Bibles from Germany to Japan in The Lost Gutenberg by Margaret Leslie Davis. Giles Milton’s Soldier, Sailor, Frogman, Spy, Airman, Gangster, Kill or Die examines D-Day from a dozen different little-known perspectives, while in Topgun Dan Pedersen tells the story of the fighter pilot program he cofounded. Also in biographies, check out We Were Rich and We Didn’t Know It, Tom Phelon’s recollections of growing up in Ireland; Inheritance, about what happened when Dani Shapiro took a DNA test and discovered her father wasn’t her biological father; The Sun Is a Compass, concerning Caroline Van Hemert’s trek across Alaska with her husband; Evan Thomas’s First, about Sandra Day O’Connor; and Mallory O’Meara’s The Lady from the Black Lagoon, about Milicent Patrick, who designed the Creature and never received credit for it. Travel across the Pacific to learn more about Polynesia in Christina Thompson’s Sea People, make your home a little greener with The Inspired Houseplant by Jen Stearns, or find out why we’re so fascinated by scale models in Simon Garfield’s In Miniature.
