School’s back in session, and everyone’s getting back into their fall routine. Part of our fall routine is the return of Story Time here in the Library for preschoolers. We’re excited that Mitzi Lehne and her Lab, Dutch, will be here when Story Time resumes on Wednesday, September 10, at 10:30 A.M. We hope to see a lot of little ones come!

212 by Alafair Burke (F BUR Hat.3)

A Heart Divided by Kathleen Morgan (F MOR Hea.1) Christian

“It is 1878 and the Caldwells and Wainwrights have been feuding for decades. As the feud boils over, Cord Wainwright and Sarah Caldwell make a most inconvenient discovery--they are falling in love. Can they betray their families for love? Or will their families betray them?”

Joyland by Stephen King (F KIN)

“Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.”

Into the Deep by Colleen Coble (F COB Roc.3)

“After the bloody Tomochic rebellion, Teresita Urrea, beloved healer and “Saint of Cabora,” flees with her father to Arizona. But she once again is claimed as the spiritual leader of the Mexican Revolution. Besieged by pilgrims and pursued by assassins, Teresita embarks on a journey through turn-of-the-century industrial America.

The Last Telegram by Liz Trenow (F TRE)

“Decades ago, as Nazi planes dominated the sky, Lily Verner made a terrible choice. She’s tried to forget, but now an unexpected event pulls her back to the 1940s British countryside. Lily finally confronts the disastrous decision that has haunted her all these years.”

“Soon after Inspector Kurt Wallander moves into a new house with a charming garden, he makes an upsetting discovery: there is a hand--indeed, an entire corpse--buried in a shallow grave in the garden. Wallander, even though busy with another case, is soon drawn into the search for the truth about his new home, and its previous owner.”
