WEEKLY QUOTE  "The sun was warm but the wind was chill.  You know how it is with an April day.  When the sun is out and the wind is still, you're one month on in the middle of May.

But if you so much as dare to speak, a cloud comes over the sunlit arch, a wind comes off a frozen peak, and you're two months back in the middle of March." – Robert Frost

 

THANK YOU  Thank you for making Library Week a success.  We hope you all enjoyed (and maybe even learned from) the festivities.  As a bonus, if you liked the specialty coffees they will be making a reappearance at our monthly Social Hours for some time to come.

 

MOVIE NIGHT  Movie night is this week at 5:30 PM on Thursday the 21st.  We will be watching a PG-rated animated film about faeries, magic, and love.  Popcorn will be provided.

REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Story Time for ages 3 – 6, with picture books and crafts, is Wednesday at 10:30 AM.  Drop-in computer help will be next Tuesday the 26th from 6 – 7 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our events.

 

JUST ARRIVED  Our shelves are filling with autobiographies this week.  Appalachian author Lee Smith relates episodes from her life in Dimestore while Augusten Burroughs has just released his latest memoir, Lust and Wonder.  A reporter investigates the story of his own brother’s childhood abduction and murder in Alligator Candy.  In the critically-praised Lab Girl a scientist looks over her life and her relationship with nature.  We’ve also added a biography of Harvey Penick, the man who wrote golf’s Little Red Book.  For something lighter, try Conversations with Classic Film Stars for interesting tidbits from some of your favorite actors and actresses.  Looking for something new, yet familiar?  Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It gathers stories from people inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir, while Reader, I Married Him has brought together tales written to honor Jane Eyre.  Finally, pick up The Books That Changed My Life for short essays from one hundred celebrities about the importance of reading in their lives.  In fiction, check out one of our new mysteries, including The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum, Murder in an Irish Village, or the latest Maisie Dobbs novel from Jacqueline Winspear, Journey to Munich.

 

ACCESS  The new outdoor handicapped lift is up and running, as is the interior elevator.  Now that the weather seems to have calmed down, please feel free to use it when you visit us.
