Staff Pick Bookmarks are here! Don’t know what to read after the last Patterson? Why not try Ghostman by Robert Hobbs? Or, if you’re looking for some less suspenseful fiction, why not The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence, We Never Talk About My Brother by Peter S. Beagle, or one of the other great titles you can now find on our staff pick bookmarks.
We have eight bookmarks broken up by genre, including both fiction and nonfiction titles. They can be found at the Circulation Desk, the Reference Desk and in the YA room on top of the display. Finish National Reading Month with a bang and find plenty of exciting new books to read!
Not only are we offering a freeSAT review, we have tons of great study materials at the Library as well. In addition to a wide selection of test prep books, educational DVDs, and tons of great vocabulary building books like the Kaplan SAT Score-Raising Classics series, we also have free online database resources that you can access from home with your library card. For example, the Learning Express Library database has content and practice tests for several exams, such as the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT, AP exams, PRAXIS, and other career exams. It also contains knowledge building in areas like Social Studies, Science, Math and English.
There are flyers on the Reference Desk that you can take home that will show you how to access our online databases at the library or at home. For some of the databases, you will need your library card to use as a username and create an account. You can also click on this link to be brought to our list of databases, which is searchable by name or subject. Continue reading →
Join us on Saturday, April 12th at 1:30 pm in the Community Room for a discussion of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis. New members welcome!
In 1923, fifteen-year-old Hattie Shepherd, swept up by the tides of the Great Migration, flees Georgia and heads north. Full of hope, she settles in Philadelphia to build a better life. Instead she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment. Hattie gives birth to nine children and vows to prepare them for an unkind world. Their lives, captured in twelve luminous threads, tell the story of a mother’s monumental courage– and a nation’s tumultuous journey. (Publisher’s Description)
