WEEKLY QUOTE "Prithee, smite the poet in the eye when he would sing to you praises of the month of May.  It is a month presided over by the spirits of mischief and madness. . .  In May, nature holds up at us a chiding finger, bidding us remember that we are not gods, but overconceited members of her own great family." – O. Henry

JUST ARRIVED  We’ve expanded our children’s nonfiction collection once again.  If you have a budding scientist, we may have just the thing for them.  Check out Robotics in the Real World, two books about computer programming using popular games Minecraft and Lego Mindstorms, or our newest book on the solar system, Planets.  Biologists might opt for At Home in a Coral Reef, Flying Frogs and Walking Fish, or our additions on bald eagles and gardening.  (Children interested in both robots and nature might also enjoy the new fiction offering The Wild Robot.)  All of these and more are just to the left of the door when you enter the Children’s Room.  Take a look!  Meanwhile, the adult fiction section includes new works by Sharyn McCrumb, Guy Gavriel Kay, and Mark Haddon, author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.  Take a look back at history with The Mechanical Horse (concerning the bicycle in America) and All the Presidents’ Gardens, or mingle past and present with Hamilton: The Revolution, all about the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Broadway musical.  Finally, interact with the return of Spring and Summer with The Laws Guide to Nature Drawing and Journaling to pick up some tips on introspection and art.
