Staff Picks for the Month of August are: “No Great Mischief” by Alistair MacLeod, “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Backman, and our Young Adult pick is “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern.

‘The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices plastered on lampposts and billboards. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

Within these nocturnal black-and-white-striped tents awaits an utterly unique experience, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stare in wonderment as the tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and become deliciously tipsy from the scents of caramel and cinnamon that waft through the air.

‘Welcome to Le Cirque des Rêves. Opens at Nightfall, Closes at Dawn.’

The Library will be open throughout the summer as the Board & staff would like to fulfill the community’s needs. The library is closed Sundays, Mondays and all holidays. We are open Tuesday through Thursday from 11:30 – 8:00 pm; Friday 11:30 – 5:00 pm, and Saturday from noon until 2 pm.
