New books on the 7-Day Shelf this week are: “The Librianist” by Patrick Dewitt, “The Only One Left” by Riley Sager, “Whispers at Dusk” by Heather Graham and “Flop Dead Gorgeous” by David Rosenfelt. En Français, nous avons “Rentre Avant la Nuit” par Lisa Jewell.
The staff pick of the week is “The Identicals” by Elin Hilderbrand.
Nantucket is only two and a half hours away from Martha’s Vineyard by ferry. But the two islands might as well be worlds apart for a set of identical twin sisters who have been at odds for years. Just because twins look exactly the same doesn’t mean they’re anything alike–and Tabitha and Harper Frost have spent their whole lives trying to prove this point. When a family crisis forces them to band together–or at least appear to–the twins come to realize that the special bond that they share is more important than the resentments that have driven them apart. A story of new loves, old battles, and a threat that gives a whole new meaning to the term sibling rivalry, THE IDENTICALS is Elin Hilderbrand at her page-turning best.

If you love fantasy stories and always wanted to live out your dreams of plundering dragons hoards and saving nobility in distress this may just be the club for you. Dungeons and Dragons is a pen & paper, swords & sorcery game that has recently gone under a large redesign to deal with many of the concerns of the classic game. The current game takes place in the Spell-Jammer setting and runs Wednesday nights from 4:00-6:30pm by James Smith and is open to all ages 9+. More games for different age groups may come soon.
We have many programs for seniors! Come in the library and see what we can do for you! We have new large print books and audio books, we can teach you about the Libby app, and some basic computer skills. Join us in our Knitting Connections group. At this time, we are knitting a box to send to the Ukraine! We supply the yarn and the knitting needles! Come and join us for a fun, social activity!
