Gardening for Bees & Butterflies


Gardening for Bees & Butterflies, March 19, 2019
I don't know about you, but I always love to watch the occasional bee or butterfly buzz or flutter from flower to flower in my garden.  I haven't intentionally planted anything to attract them, so it's a real treat when they show up.

Just imagine what it could be like if I did know what I was doing and planted things bees and butterflies actually like?

Patty Laughlin from Lorax Landscaping will be at the library on Tuesday, March 19th at 7:00PM to give us the low-down on how to make our gardens bee and butterfly friendly.

Her talk is free and open to the public, so grab a friend and come on down!

February's Tween Title of the Month is The Looking Glass Wars


February 2019's Tween Title of the Month is "The Looking Glass Wars"
Frank Beddor's The Looking Glass Wars is February's featured title for tweens in grades 6-8.

Copies of the book are available in the upper-level Teen area and the lower-level Young Readers’ Room.

About the Book
The Myth: Alice was an ordinary girl who stepped through the looking glass and entered a fairy-tale world invented by Lewis Carroll in his famous storybook. 
The Truth: Wonderland is real. 
Alyss Heart is the heir to the throne, until her murderous aunt Redd steals the crown and kills Alyss's parents. To escape Redd, Alyss and her bodyguard, Hatter Madigan, must flee to our world through the Pool of Tears. But in the pool Alyss and Hatter are separated. Lost and alone in Victorian London, Alyss is befriended by an aspiring author to whom she tells the violent, heartbreaking story of her young life. Yet he gets the story all wrong. Hatter Madigan knows the truth only too well, and he is searching every corner of our world to find the lost princess and return her to Wonderland so she may battle Redd for her rightful place as the Queen of Hearts.

About The Looking Glass Wars Trilogy
Book 1 The Looking Glass Wars--
When she is cast out of Wonderland by her evil aunt Redd, young Alyss Heart finds herself living in Victorian Oxford as Alice Liddell and struggles to keep memories of her kingdom intact until she can return and claim her rightful throne.

Book 2 Seeing Redd--
When Alyss Heart returns to her rightful place on the throne of Wonderland, she is put to the test as enemies, both inside and outside the borders of her kingdom, push their own agendas and wield horrific weapons, while she strives to unify them all.

Book 3 ArchEnemy--
Virtuous Queen Alyss, who has lost the power of imagination, and her murderous Aunt Redd battle for control of Wonderland.

February's Book of the Month is The Kiss Quotient


February 2019's Book of the Month is "The Kiss Quotient"
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang is our featured title for February. Copies are available in the “New” room on the upper level of the library.

About the Book
Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases--a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn't help that Stella has Asperger's and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice--with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can't afford to turn down Stella's offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan--from foreplay to more-than-missionary position...

Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but crave all of the other things he's making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic...
