WORD OF THE WEEK  Mulct: Either to lawfully impose a fine given as punishment for a crime, OR to defraud someone

 

GENE LALONDE  Survivalist and author Gene LaLonde will be returning to the library to discuss strategies for making it through natural and man-made disasters.  Bring your questions tonight the 14th at 6 PM for this encore presentation.

 

MOVIE NIGHT  Drive on up and park for November’s movie night this Thursday the 16th at 5:30 PM.  We’ll be watching the latest in an animated series about talking, racing automobiles, and sharing popcorn.

 

REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Story Time for ages 3 – 6, with picture books and crafts, is on Wednesday and Saturday at 10:30 AM.  Personalized computer help will be available this Saturday the 18th from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for all the details on all of our upcoming events. 

 

JUST ARRIVED  Sometimes the fictional future isn’t all it should be.  We have three new examples of this in our YA section this week.  First is All the Wind in the World, which follows two teenaged migrant workers in a drought-plagued American Southwest.  Second is The Innocent Treatment, about a girl who undergoes brain surgery and transforms from trusting to paranoid – but in her world, the paranoia might be justified.  Third is the third book in Paolo Bacigalupi’s Shipbreaker series, Tool of War, with a genetically engineered boy-soldier at its center.  The Knowing, sequel to Sharon Cameron’s The Forgetting, travels far out to a human society in the stars, long separated from Earth.  One Dark Throne is also a sequel, continuing the story of three sister-queens.  Finally in fantasy is The Last Namsara, filled with the magic of storytelling and dragons, both equally deadly.  Of course, the present also has its own struggles.  Far from the Tree deals with questions of adoption and family, while Long Way Down addresses the problems of gun violence and revenge.  Malinda Lo’s A Line in the Dark features lies and secrets and manipulation, Claire Zorn’s Protected examines a family reeling from an unexpected death, and John Green’s Turtles All the Way Down sees a girl struggling to manage her obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety while trying to live a “normal” life.  Lastly this week, we have The 57 Bus, which tells the true story of a prank that spiraled into a crime, telling the lives of the two teenagers involved both before and after.
