Between the Covers – October 11

Oct 11, 2017 @ 08:06

New books – New on the seven day fiction shelf this week:  “The Last Tudor” by Philippa Gregory, “Without Fear or Favor” by Robert K. Tanenbaum, “The Lying Game” by Ruth Ware, and “Seeing Red” by Sandra Brown.

After school programs – We have started the after school programs.  On Tuesday, we have Craft Club, Wednesday is Clay Club, Thursday is Cartoon Club, and Friday is Game Day.  All clubs are 3:30-4:30 for ages 5-12 and anyone under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult.  Come on down to the Wawa Public Library and participate in our after school programs.

Drop Box – We are now operating with our new drop box in place.  You may deposit your returns only in the drop box when the library is closed.

Staff Picks for the Month of October are:

“The Obsession” by Nora Roberts, “The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow” by Rita Leganski, and “Daddy’s Gone A Hunting” by Mary Higgins Clark.

Conceived in love and possibility, Bonaventure Arrow didn’t make a peep when he was born, and the doctor nearly took him for dead.  No one knows that Bonaventure’s silence is filled with resonance—a miraculous gift of rarified hearing that encompasses the Universe of Every Single Sound.  Growing up in the big house on Christopher Street in Bayou Cymbaline, Bonaventure can hear flowers grow, a thousand shades of blue, and the miniature tempests that rage inside raindrops.  He can also hear the gentle voice of his father, William Arrow, shot dead before Bonaventure was born by a mysterious stranger known only as the Wanderer.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in our community survey which has now come to an end.  We appreciate all your input and look forward to seeing you at the library to continue serving you in the future.  The winner of the draw prize for participating in the survey is Denise Connell!  Congratulations, Denise!
