The big holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year are behind us. Yes, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are ahead of us but they don’t take as much time. So I was able to have the time to check out what has been happening in the area of acquisitions for the library.
You puzzlers will be happy to know that over the last couple of months 20 new puzzles have been added to the RR Library collection. Come work on a puzzle in the library or take one home.
We have also added a sprinkling of audio books (Teeth of the Tiger by Tom Clancy), DVDs (Marley and Me), and Large Print books (Black Widow by Daniel Silva). I’ve given one example of each genre, but there are more.
A fun autobiography came in, What’s So Funny? My Hilarious Life by Tim Conway, and a well-researched biography/history The Wright Brothers by David McCullough. I’ve read this one as has my husband and I recommend it.
A history set in Texas, Cowboy of the Pecos, 2016 by Patrick Dearen is new. Non-fiction entries included books from both theatres of World War II: Lost Airman: A true story of escape from Nazi-occupied France, 2016 by Seth Meyerowitz and Killing the Rising Sun: how America vanquished World War II Japan, 2016 by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard.
Some of our newest fiction includes: The Wrong Side of Goodbye: Harry Bosch story, 2016 by Michael Connelly; The Whistler, 2016 by John Grisham; A Great Reckoning: an Inspector Gamache story, 2016 by Louise Penny; Fool Me Once, 2016 by Harlan Coben; See Me, 2015 by Nicholas Sparks.
