The Harlem Library Board of Trustees meets today for their regular monthly meeting at 4:15 in the library meeting room.
You have only a few days left this month to “Buy a Bag O’Books” for only one dollar. Fill a grocery sack with used books from the library Reading Room!
When you complete the March Book Challenge to read the first book in a trilogy contact the library so your name can be entered to win a gift certificate from a local business. The challenge for April is to read a book with a two-word title.
On display now at the library is information from Senior Medical Patrol, a national program for people with Medicare of all ages. Included are pamphlets about Medical Identity Theft, AARP Watchdog Alert, and 4 R’s for Fighting Medicare Fraud. There is also information on how to read your Medicare Summary Notice. Please stop and help yourself to any of the flyers. There are also free sticky notes and playing cards.
The Summer Reading program will begin in just a couple of months. This program encourages children to keep their reading skills sharp during the summer break from school. This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories.” The library has a wish list of titles that we would like to purchase to go with the Summer Reading program. If you would like to help out by purchasing one, or more, books we would greatly appreciate it. Stop by to take a look at the wish list.
New books this week include “The Forgotten Hours” by Katrin Schumann. Katie Gregory’s life fell apart a decade earlier at her family’s summer cabin on Eagle Lake. Her best friend accused her father of sexual assault. Throughout the trial and imprisonment Katie believed his innocence. Now he is released from jail and Katie returns to the lakeside cabin. There she must face old memories as they collide with new realities.
Christina Dodd is the author of “What Doesn’t Kill Her.” Kellen Adams is missing a year of her memory caused by a bullet to her brain. But as she discovers the truth it will change her life. She finds herself on the run in the wilderness carrying a priceless burden she must protect at all costs.
“Parkland” is the true story of the school shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The author of “Columbine,” David Cullen, gives a deeply moving account of the teenage survivors who “pushed back against the NRA and congressional leaders and launched the March for Our Lives movement.
A new thriller by Tosca Lee is “The Line Between.” Wynter Roth is cast out of the doomsday cult New Earth just as a mysterious outbreak of earl-onset dementia spreads across the nation. As Wynter struggles to live in a world she was taught to regard as evil, she’s convinced she made a terrible mistake. When her sister, still a New Earth member, shows up with medical samples that hold the key to decoding the disease, Wynter knows there is something more sinister at play.
Other new titles include “Learning to See,” a novel of photographer Dorothea Lange by Elise Hooper; “A Worthy Heart” and “Love’s Faithful Promise,” the second and third installments in the Courage to Dream series by Susan Anne Mason; and “Texas Ranger” by James Patterson.
