Exciting things will be happening at the Wawa Public Library this summer!  If you haven’t already, be sure to register your child for the TD Summer Reading Club. Go to and go to the Clubs page to register. We have two Good in Every Grain Kits left at the time this article was written. Hope everyone’s grains are growing. Our Reading BINGO Challenge is on and continues through the months of July and August. Pick up the BINGO sheet from the library or download from the website under the CLUBS page. There will be one Adult prize and one Child prize. We will also have a Family Photo Scavenger Hunt to be held from July 15th until July 22nd, 2021.  The rules can also be found on our website under the CLUBS page.

The Staff Pick of the Week is “Ice Cold” by Tess Gerritsen. In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they’re stranded with no help in sight.

As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness–someone who is watching Maura and her friends.

Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura’s charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless–and the chilling truth about Maura’s fate.
