Hi, hope everyone is having a good Spring Break, I just finished Ana’s Story by Jenna Bush, the true story written by President Bush’s daughter about her time working with UNICEF. This book is very interesting and gives great info about HIV/AIDS, abuse, and how to volunteer and help others. I will be reading next the Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan, a book about the Dust Bowl that took place here in our area. Mrs. Murray just read Copper Sun by Sharon Drapper and said it is an excellent read.
I just finished the 2006 Newbery winner, Criss Cross by Lynn Rae Perkins, a coming of age book that was interesting. I am beginning the book Mentor: the kid and the CEO by Tom Pace, this book has gotten great reviews here and I am excited to read it. The book When the Black Girl Sings by Bill Wright, a new book from the Junior Library Guild, has gotten rave reviews from patrons. I have also just heard of an author and will be ordering some of his books today, “You can’t put them down, they are that good”. Lee Child is the author. Have a good week! Remember the library will be open during Spring Break, Monday through Thursday, closed for Good Friday and the Saturday before Easter.
I thought we would talk about the Kansas Library Card program of books online with it’s Overdrive program. This program lets you download audio books to your computer, ipod, or mp3 player. There is music, children’s books, and adult books available. Mrs. Murray has just finished The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas by John Boyne. She enjoyed it so much she will be purchasing it next year! Mrs. Dunn is listening to Desert Rain by Elizabeth Lowell, a cowboy romance. Come to the library and ask about a Kansas Library Card and the Overdrive program!
We have new materials in so check out the new materials page, a really cool book that shows you what makes us sneeze, and John Grisham, Lisa Scottoline, and more!
Mrs. Dunn is reading Paint the Wind by Pam Munoz Ryan, I am reading Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper, the first in The Dark is Rising series. Mrs. Wasson is reading The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs by Betty G. Birney. We also have just purchased The Spiderwick Chronicles which is coming out in the theaters soon, I have read the first in the series and it is good!
