Adult Book Group Reads Just Mercy for May 3rd or 5th


Adult Book Group Reads "Just Mercy" for May 3 or 5, 2017
Bryan Stevensons Just Mercy is the chosen title for All Booked Up’s discussion on Wednesday, May 3rd at 6:30PM or Friday, May 5th at 1:00PM.  Copies of the book are available in the upper level “New” room.

About the Book
A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time.
 
Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.


Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.

April's Book of the Month is Kookooland


April 2017's Book of the Month is "Kookooland"
Kookooland by Gloria Noris is our featured title for April. Copies are available in the “New” room on the upper level of the library.

About the Book
Gloria Norris’s KooKooLand is a memoir written on the edge of a knife blade. Chilling, intensely moving, and darkly funny, it cuts to the heart and soul of a troubled American family, and announces the arrival of a startlingly original voice.

Gloria Norris grew up in the projects of Manchester, New Hampshire with her parents, her sister, Virginia, and her cat, Sylvester. A snapshot might show a happy, young family, but only a dummkopf would buy that. 

Nine-year-old Gloria is gutsy and wisecracking. Her father, Jimmy, all dazzle and danger, is often on the far side of the law and makes his own rules—which everyone else better follow.

Stuffed Animal Sleepover is April 6th


Stuffed Animal Sleepover is April 6, 2017 || photo of stuffed animals at Fire Department
The 8th Annual Stuffed Animal Sleepover is on Thursday, April 6th! 

Children are invited to wear their pajamas and bring one of their favorite stuffed animals--but definitely not the one they absolutely need to sleep with--to a special Storytime at 6:30PM. After Storytime the kids go home and the stuffed animals spend the night at the library. Boy, do they have fun! A week or so later you can see pictures of the animals' adventures on the library's website.

If your child can't make it to Storytime, but their stuffie still wants to come to the sleepover, just drop it off any time on Thursday.  We'll take good care of them and make sure they have fun.

All stuffed animals should be picked up on Friday (10AM-6PM) or Saturday (9AM-Noon).
