We have new, exciting books at library. Here are some titles.


“Draw with a Vengeance” by Helen Wrath. In an age of mellow, almost seraphic, coloring manuals this small book stands out for its dark, quirky sense of humor. Perfect for a day when you feel on the verge of blowing up with pent-up feelings. This one will make you laugh, at the very least, a little bit.

“The Joy of Keeping Farm Animals” by Laura Childs. Always wanted to raise two chicken, a goat and a pig in your back-yard? This book is what you need. Loaded with information; from how to buy your chicken (pig, goat, cow) to health and grooming. Web addresses to expand your range of information.

“They Made America” by Harold Evans. America was not only shaped by our founding fathers, but by the innovators who made America what it is today. If you’re curious as how this country came to be, pick up this book today.

“Hadji Murat” by Leo Tolstoy. This less known novel by the great Russian author becomes more poignant and interesting after recent events. It is the story of an historical figure. Hadji Murat was a Muslim and Chechen rebel who long fought the Russian and then his own people. Tolstoy gives us an unforgettable portrait of a man thorn between allegiances and cultures.

 “After The Crash” by Michel Bussi. A plane bound for Paris crashes in the Swiss Alps. Out of all the 169 passengers on board, only one survived. An infant named Lyse-Rose, or was it Emilie? There were two infants on board that flight bound for Paris. Both families claimed the sole survivor as their own. Years later, the now grown up mystery infinite disappears. Meanwhile, a detective named Crédule Grand-Duc tries to uncover the mystery of who she really is. 

“Dictator” by Robert Harris. Set in ancient Rome, an orator named Cicero is exiled. He’s allowed back, only if he pledges to support his political rival, Julius Caesar. There, he climbs his way back up the political ladder, as he attempts to deal with corruption from within.
