WORD OF THE WEEK  Careen: to turn a ship onto its side to clean or repair it; or to speed forward, (often tilting from side to side as if out of control)


SOCIAL HOUR  Our monthly social hour hit a snag last week, so we’re trying again.  Stop in tomorrow the 20th for coffee, cookies, and conversation at 2 PM.


MOVIE NIGHT  Bring your friends and family for a film about an underwear-clad superhero this Thursday the 21st at 5:30 PM.  Popcorn and drinks will be provided.


FAMILY BOOK CLUB  Our selection this month is The Wild Robot by Peter Brown.  The discussion and creation session is next Thursday the 28th at 5 PM.  New members are always welcome.

REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Story Time is cancelled this week.  Look for the program’s return on Wednesday the 27th at 10:30 AM as usual.  The next drop-in computer help session will be Tuesday the 26th from 6 – 7 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for all the details on all of our upcoming events. 


LIBRARY APPS  Have you ever wished for easier access to your account through your smartphone or tablet?  Search your device’s app store for “North Country Library System.”  You’ll be able to search for a library near you, search for a book within a library using your camera, see upcoming events, manage your account information, and more.  If you’ve ever checked out electronic materials from us – or if you want to start – you should also check out Libby by Overdrive for quick access to eBooks.


JUST ARRIVED  Take a trip to an often-unsettled corner of Europe – the juncture of Bulgaria, Turkey, and Greece – with Kapka Kassabova’s Border to learn about both the recent history of the region and the people who have lived there.  Visit Barcelona’s massive Sagrada Familia in a new book by Gijs van Hasnbergen, and learn some tips for creating your own pencil masterpiece with 5-Minute Sketching – Architecture.  Cross the Channel and explore Victorian Britain with three books: Koh-i-Noor investigates the history of the world’s most valuable diamond, currently part of the Crown Jewels; Darwin’s Backyard is both a biography of the famous scientist, exploring how his life led him to his conclusions of evolution, and a guide to performing some of his early experiments yourself; and finally we take a look at the Queen herself through her friendship with Abdul Karim in Victoria and Abdul.  We also have new September novels by David Thurlo, Stef Penney, J. D. Robb, John Le Carre, Salman Rushdie, Danielle Steel, and Ken Follett.
