February is Library Lovers’ Month, and as usual the library has something for everyone!
Come and see our whole red-wrapped shelf of red books just waiting to be read – all topics, all genres, all interesting, and all free.
If you borrow a book from the Red-Wrapped Reads shelf, you could be one of the lucky winners to take home a box of chocolates to enjoy with your book, so have a look, select a book, and borrow.
Added to the red books, are a shelf or two of mystery books. They are mysterious in more ways than one – they have all been shelved with their spines facing inwards, so what you select is a real mystery – no authors, no titles – just the mystery – or thrill – of it all.
You’ve got all of February to borrow from the Red-Wrapped Reads shelf – and try your luck for those elusive chocolates.
Plenty of new books have been added to the shelves this week. For beginning readers, there’s a set of 18 fairytale books, with tried and tested favourites such as The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Little Mermaid, and The Three Little Pigs. These books are for children just starting out on their reading adventures, being of the “proper book” size and not the picture book format, but still containing plenty of illustrations.
Books for adults include a new mystery (not red!) by Robert Bryndza. Last Breath is a Detective Erika Foster novel, described as "compelling at every turn… grabs us from the first page and simply won’t let go”.
In a more serious vein is Self-Leadership and the One Minute Manager: Gain the Mindset and Skillset for Getting What You Need to Succeed by Ken Blanchard, Susan Fowler and Laurence Hawkins.
Another title dealing with management and leadership is People Styles at Work and Beyond: Making Bad Relationships Good and Good Relationships Better by Robert and Dorothy Bolton.
So start reading now. Membership is free for all residents. See you soon at the library.
