Show how much you love your library! February is “Love Your Library” month and we invite you to color a heart to add to our quilt.
The Book Challenge for February is to read a book that reminds you of someone you love: maybe a book by a loved one’s favorite author; a quilting book because your mom or grandmother was a quilter; or how about a gardening book for a family member who grew flowers or vegetables?

Naomi soon finds herself drawn to Celia, who has nothing left but the belief that butterflies are her guardians and guide. But Naomi learns that there is danger facing Celia and herself that is creeping closer.
A new medical thriller by Robin Cook is “Genesis.” Medical Examiner Laurie Montgomery is trying to find the cause of the death of twenty-eight-year old Kera Jacobsen.

Hoping to identify the mystery father, DNA from the fetus is sent to an ancestry website. But when Kera’s closest friend is murdered, the need for answers becomes more urgent.
Other new titles include “The Girl Who Lived Twice,” a Lisbeth Salander novel by David Lagercrantz; “The Rise of Magicks” Book 3 of the Chronicles of One series by Nora Roberts; and “Crossroads” by W.H. Cameron.
