New books to download

Here’s what’s new on eBooks at NH/Overdrive. Standouts include A Long Petal to the Sea by Isabel Allende, a moving story about a couple who cannot outrun their past, The Other Mrs, a psychological thriller by Mary Kubica, and The Library Book by Susan Orlean, which takes the mystery surrounding a devastating fire at the LA Public Library as a jumping off point to explore the colorful history of that library and to offer an appreciation for all that libraries do.

Video meet up — try again?

So we gave a video meet-up but nobody came. Is this something you all out there would like to do going forward? We would like to know how you are doing and for you to have a forum to talk about what’s up with the library while this situation persists. If you are interested in future meet-ups, you can use this sites comments thread to reply, or send us an email. I’m also looking into ways of doing a story time on Zoom, tba.
