WEEKLY QUOTE  “It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” – Anne Frank

 

AUTHOR BIRTHDAYS  Anne Frank might have turned 87 this month, had her life not been cut short at the age of 15 by the Holocaust.  Other authors born in June whose works are on display at the library include Helen Keller, Joyce Carol Oates, Salman Rushdie, George Orwell, and W. B. Yeats.

 

MIXED MEDIA ART  Come to the library this Saturday the 25th at 2 PM to learn how to create a unique piece of art using several different kinds of materials.  This program is open to those ages nine and above.

JUST ARRIVED  In search of a good summery mystery?  Take a look at our shelves of new books.  Recent purchases include Nantucket Grand and Bloodroot, both set on the beaches of New England; Reading up a Storm, set on the North Carolina coast; and Murder, By George, which takes place a little closer to home in a fictional Adirondack town.  If you’re missing winter already, The Final Tap, set on a “living history” farm/museum, is also a mystery but takes place during maple sugaring season.  For those intrigued by real-life mysteries, check out True Crime Addict, the tale of a disappearance and the journalist obsessed with solving it.  Of course, we haven’t neglected the rest of our collection.  In the mood for something very different?  Try Romeo and/or Juliet, an illustrated choose your own adventure-style take on Shakespeare’s most famous play.  We’ve also added new novels by Brad Meltzer, Louise Erdrich, Alan Furst, Dorothea Benton Frank, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Don DeLillo, Harry Turtledove, and Stephen King, as well as new nonfiction by Mary Roach and Neil Gaiman.  Our children’s nonfiction has seen another boost, with topics ranging from gardening to robotics to a variety of animals.  Finally, in YA we have a new guide to chemistry and the 4th book in Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle.  Come on in and check them out!
