En Français, nous avons “Il était une fois en December”” par Marie-Krystel Gendron.


STAFF PICK OF THE WEEK IS “Dreamland” by Nicholas Sparks. From the book jacket:

Dreamland is a love story about risking everything for a dream—and whether it’s possible to leave the past behind.

Colby Mills once felt destined for a musical career, until tragedy grounded his aspirations. Now the head of a small family farm in North Carolina, he spontaneously takes a gig playing at a bar in St. Pete’s Beach, Florida, seeking a rare break from his duties at home.

But when he meets Morgan Lee, his world is turned upside-down, making him wonder if the responsibilities he has shouldered need dictate his life forever. The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. Romantically and musically, she and Colby complete each other in a way that neither has ever known.

While they are falling headlong in love, Beverly is on a heart-pounding journey of another kind. Fleeing an abusive husband with her six-year-old son, she is trying to piece together a life for them in a small town far off the beaten track. With money running out and danger seemingly around every corner, she makes a desperate decision that will rewrite everything she knows to be true.

In the course of a single unforgettable week, two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections . . . forcing each to wonder whether the dream of a better life can ever survive the weight of the past.


New Movies on the shelf are “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” starring Harrison Ford, “Equalizer 2” starring Denzel Washington, “F9 the Fast Saga” starring Vin Diesel and Jordana Brewster and “Monster High” starring Ceci Balagot and Mila Harris.

In Dungeons & Dragons, the players form an adventuring party who explore fantasy worlds together as they embark on epic quests. The collective creativity in your D&D game builds stories that you’ll tell again and again— ranging from the stuff of legend to absurd incidents that’ll make you laugh years later. Due to the popularity of the D&D Club we will be splitting into adult and youth clubs. The youth group will be held on January 4th and 18th and the adult group will be held on January 11th and 25th. The Youth Group is for those aged 9 to 15, and Adult Group is for those aged 16 and up. The Clubs run from 4:30-6:30 on Thursdays. We hope you can join us!
