Don’t miss the great selection of holiday books on display at the library. There are many old favorites as well as new books to choose from. Come and see the children’s holiday books on display as well. In the children’s section there is also a Christmas activity table. Bring your family to the library this holiday season.

The Book Challenge this month is to reread your favorite book. Also time is running out for the 2019 Reading Challenge to read at least 52 books this year.

Please contact the library when you have completed either challenge so your name can be entered to win prizes.

“The Timepiece” is a new novel by bestselling author Beverly Lewis. Englisher Adeline Pelham shows up in Hickory Hollow reminding everyone of the painful secret that recently upended the Miller household. Can God bring something good out of mistakes of the past?

Lisa Jewell has written “The Family Upstairs.” Libby Jones has just turned twenty-five when she receives a long anticipated letter, one that will reveal her true identity. She also learns she is the inheritor of an abandoned mansion in London’s fashionable Chelsea neighborhood. Even though the home is in disrepair it is still worth millions. What Libby doesn’t know is that others have been waiting for this day as well and they are headed her way.

Bill O’Reilly is the author of “The United States of Trump: How the President Really Sees America. “Not a partisan pro-Trump or anti-Trump book, this is an up-to-the-minute intimate view of the man and his sphere of influence.”

“Red at the Bone” is by Jacqueline Woodson. Sixteen-year-old Melody is celebrating her coming-of-age ceremony at the home of her grandparents in Brooklyn.

She wears a special custom-made dress that sixteen years earlier was made for Melody’s mother who never got to wear it.

Ben Lerner is the author of the novel “The Topeka School.” Adam Gordon, a senior at Topeka High School, is one of the cool kids, who is expected to win a national debate championship. His parents both work at a psychiatric clinic that attracts staff and patients from around the world. Adam and other seniors bring the loner Darren Eberheart into the high school’s social scene with disastrous effects.

Other new arrivals include “Death in Focus,” an Elena Standish novel by Anne Perry; “Beneath the Attic” by V.C. Andrews, and “Lethal Agent” by Vince Flynn.

The library board will not meet this month. There will be no children’s programming the weeks of December 23 or December 30. Programming will resume the first full week of January. The library will be closed Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Book Club members may pick up the new selection “Beneath a Scarlet Sky” by Mark Sullivan the week of December 30. The first discussion will be January 6 at 4 P.M.
