Tween Book Group Reads Throne of Glass for March 8th


Tween Book Group Reads "Throne of Glass" for March 8, 2018
Page Turners, our book group for tweens in grades 6-8, is reading Throne of Glass by Sarah Maas for their get-together on Thursday, March 8th at 2:05PM in room 10 of the Litchfield Middle School. Page Turners begins with an after school snack, followed by a discussion of the book, and a short activity.
Copies of the book are available in the upper-level Teen area and the lower-level Young Readers’ Room.

About the Book
After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

Throne of Glass is the first in a series of six books.

February's Book of the Month is Chasing Fireflies


February 2018's Book of the Month is "Chasing Fireflies"
Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin is our featured title for February. Copies are available in the “New” room on the upper level of the library.

About the Book
They have one summer to find what was lost long ago. "Never settle for less than the truth," she told him. But when you don't even know your real name, the truth gets a little complicated. It can nestle so close to home it's hard to see. It can even flourish inside a lie. And as Chase Walker discovered, learning the truth about who you are can be as elusive--and as magical--as chasing fireflies on a summer night. A haunting story about fishing, baseball, home cooking, and other matters of life and death.

Adult Book Group Reads 10% Happier for March 2nd or 7th


Adult Book Group Reads "10% Happier" for March 2 or 7, 2018
Dan Harris's 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works is the chosen title for All Booked Up’s discussion on Friday, March 2nd at 1:00PM or Wednesday, March 7th at 6:30PM .  Copies of the book are available in the upper level “New” room.

About the Book
After having a nationally televised panic attack, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had propelled him through the ranks of a hypercompetitive business, but had also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.

Finally, Harris stumbled upon an effective way to rein in that voice, something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation, a tool that research suggests can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain. 10% Happier takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America’s spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.

Next Tuesday: The Quest for Happiness


Starting a new year is typically a time for reflection and goal setting.  To that end, Philosophy professor Maria Sanders explores how ideas of happiness have changed Western civilization through the ages.   

Sanders’ illustrated talk compares and contrasts major concepts of happiness and well-being around the world, delving into questions such as: Can money buy happiness?
How does engaging in one’s community impact happiness? and 
Why doesn’t the United States make the top ten in worldwide happiness survey?  

Attendees are encouraged to join in a discussion of current measures for assessing self-reported levels of happiness, specific findings reported to increase ones level of happiness, as well as happiness projects undertaken by entire communities.

Learn to set your own definition of what it means to live a full and excellent life  on Tuesday, January 23rd, 7:00PM at the library.

This program is free and open to the public.

New Hampshire Humanities nurtures the joy of learning and inspires community engagement by bringing life-enhancing ideas from the humanities to the people of New Hampshire.  They connect people with ideas.  Learn more about the Council and its work at www.nhhc.org.
