Tween Book Group Reads Everland for April 13th


book cover || Tween Book Group Reads "Everland" for April 13, 2017
Page Turners, our book group for tweens in grades 6-8, is reading Everland by Wendy Spinale for their get-together on Thursday, April 13th @ 2:30PM.  The group begins with an after school snack, followed by a discussion of the book, and a short activity.

Transportation is available from LMS via bus #3 at the regular dismissal time.

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

About the Book
London has been destroyed in a blitz of bombs and disease. The only ones who have survived are children, among them Gwen Darling and her siblings, Joanna and Mikey. They spend their nights scavenging and their days avoiding the ruthless Marauders -- the German army led by Captain Hanz Otto Oswald Kretschmer.

Unsure if the virus has spread past England's borders but desperate to leave, Captain Hook hunts for a cure, which he thinks can be found in one of the survivors. He and his Marauders stalk the streets snatching children for experimentation. None ever return. Until the day they grab Joanna. As Gwen sets out to save her, she meets a daredevil boy named Pete. Pete offers the assistance of his gang of Lost Boys and the fierce sharpshooter Bella, who have all been living in a city hidden underground. But in a place where help has a steep price and every promise is bound by blood, it will cost Gwen. And are she, Pete, the Lost Boys, and Bella enough to outsmart Captain Hook?

March's Book of the Month is The Two-Family House


March 2017's Book of the Month is "The Two-Family House"
The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman is our featured title for March. Copies are available in the “New” room on the upper level of the library.

About the Book
Brooklyn, 1947: in the midst of a blizzard, in a two-family brownstone, two babies are born, minutes apart. The mothers are sisters by marriage with an impenetrable bond forged before and during that dramatic night. When the storm passes, everyone seems to have gotten what they wanted, but the truth is not that simple. The consequences of that night, of one misguided choice, shape the course of the families – friendships unravel, marriages change and even the sacred bonds between mothers and children are tested. No one knows why, and no one can stop it, but everyone’s lives have been shaped by that evening.
