SUMMER READING  Our children’s summer reading program will be starting soon.  As in previous years, children can read books, enter an end-of-summer raffle, and earn weekly prizes.  Stop in to the library to pick up your reading record and learn more about what this year has in store.


JUST ARRIVED  Many new novels by popular authors have arrived on our shelves in the past few weeks.  First up is an early manuscript by the late Michael Crichton, published for the first time as Dragon Teeth.  While it involves dinosaurs in its own way, it is very different from Jurassic Park.  Paula Hawkins, author of 2015’s The Girl on the Train, returns with the suspenseful Into the WaterSince We Fell is the latest novel from Dennis Lehane, while Joshua Ferris has published a collection of short stories in The Dinner Party and Richard Paul Evans kicks off a new series in The Broken Road.  In continuing series, check out Sara Paretsky’s Fallout, James Patterson’s 16th Seduction, and the complete Jack Reacher short stories by Lee Child in No Middle Name.  Finally, travel back to the past with Alison Weir’s latest Tudor novel, Anne Boleyn, A King’s Obsession, or kick off your shoes and enjoy the summer in Dorothea Benton Frank’s Same Beach Next Year.
