Carolle Beaulieu-Pitre and the Wawa Public Library are collaborating to bring you the Basics of Finger Weaving. It is a 4-week course beginning on April 4th from 1-2:30 pm at the Wawa Public Library.  Participants must register as space is limited.

We have used books for sale! $0.25 each for paperback and $0.50 each for hard cover! Kids’ books are $0.10 each! DVDs are $2.00 each. Selling old books and DVDs will allow us to buy MORE new books and movies! Come on in and check it out!

New books on the 7-day shelf this week are; “Code Name Sapphire” by Pam Jenoff, “Encore in Death” by J.D. Robb, “More Than Meets the Eye” by Iris Johansen and “The Parenting Map” by Dr. Shefali. En Français, nous avons “Coeurs et Ames” par Colleen Hoover.


STAFF PICK OF THE WEEK is “The Forest of Vanishing Stars” by Kristin Harmel. From the book jacket:

After being stolen from her wealthy German parents and raised in the unforgiving wilderness of eastern Europe, a young woman finds herself alone in 1941 after her kidnapper dies. Her solitary existence is interrupted, however, when she happens upon a group of Jews fleeing the Nazi terror. Stunned to learn what’s happening in the outside world, she vows to teach the group all she can about surviving in the forest—and in turn, they teach her some surprising lessons about opening her heart after years of isolation. But when she is betrayed and escapes into a German-occupied village, her past and present come together in a shocking collision that could change everything.

Inspired by incredible true stories of survival against staggering odds, and suffused with the journey-from-the-wilderness elements that made Where the Crawdads Sing a worldwide phenomenon, The Forest of Vanishing Stars is a heart-wrenching and suspenseful novel.
