LIBRARY TALK – MARCH 25, 2021

Off

Somewhat of a slow start to the week for people coming in—I’ll admit it, with the weather so spring-like, I realize it might be hard to come inside, but we’re here and hope that you will be as well.  I always hope that we are on the planned errand runs—grocery, bank, post office,…library!

The library gets used for a variety of research subjects, and some of them resurface with some frequency, especially local bits.  Just being Monday, we’ve already had a request of an 1876 article in the Ripley Bee that was mentioned in a book published 15 years ago (back when we didn’t have any of them digitized—now it was easy to send the link to the requestor), and we are sending out another copy of the 1879 Henrietta
Wood story that was also published in the Ripley Bee (go Bee!)—since the book Sweet Taste of Liberty has been out, we regularly get requests for copies of this article and we are happy to oblige.   Who knows what tomorrow may bring?

New books out this week include Dean Koontz’s The Other Emily, Lisa Scottoline writes her first historical fiction in Eternal, set in Rome and starting in the1950s, Jacqueline Winspear continues her intrepid Massie Dobbs mysteries with The Consequences of Fear, Harlan Coben spins a suspenseful yarn in Win, Janet Evanovich continues her Fox and O’Hare series with The Bounty and of course James Patterson has something
out—this week it is The Palm Beach Murders—3 short novels in one book, and next week is The Red Book, a sequel to the Black Book.   We are adding lots of adorable juvenile picture books, YA graphics and novels, as well as the latest and greatest in the popular
kid series…stop in, have a look, we bet you’d find something you’d like. Happy Spring!
