We'll be discussing THE BOOK THIEF at our Feb. 16, 7 p.m. book discussion group. All are welcome!

Robert Parker display

We currently are featuring a display of titles by Boston's beloved author, Robert B. Parker, who died January 18, 2010. Many of us have enjoyed his Spenser, Sunny Randall, and Jesse Stone novels.

Next week's display will go in quite a different direction, with "bonnet novels." These are novels that feature Amish characters and lifestyles. These novels, including those by authors Beverly Lewis and Dale Cramer, have become very popular in the last few years. Many of them feature romance, but they are very "clean cut." There are also a few Amish mysteries...
Check them out!

New Jodi Picoult book in February 2010

Jodi Picoult, who is possibly the most popular author at our library, has a new book coming out in February: HOUSE RULES. It is about a teenage boy with Asperger's syndrome who becomes a murder suspect. The title is already in our card catalog, so holds may be placed. This will undoubtedly be in high demand, and we'll have multiple copies.

Want to learn a foreign language?

Our compact discs and books on cassette for learning languages are quite popular. We've been looking into on-line learning for languages, but have found them too expensive, basically, in relation to our demand. We discovered, which is apparently free. Take a look and let us know what you think.
