My heartfelt thanks to all of the people that made the Friends of the Library’s Fish Fry and Silent Auction such a success. The Friends have been anxious to help out with the Annex, and with everyone’s support, they have the means to make a sizable contribution to the project.

Three more weeks of movie madness for the younger audience at the Ripley location on Thursday afternoons at 1 p.m. and just over three weeks for reading for fun before school starts. We are still handing out t-shirts to kids that are meeting their goal and our congratulations to all that have filled out their reading logs.

New books and movies are added weekly, often daily. Here’s a small selection of what we added last week and plan to add this week: Fiction with fans include Speaking in Bones by Kathy Reichs (Bones television series based on Reichs’ books), After the Storm: A Kate Burkholder novel by Linda Castillo—part of the murder mystery series that is set in Painter’s Mill, Ohio, of course the hotly anticipated Go Set a Watchman, the sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Stuart Woods offers Naked Greed and prolific James Patterson’s latest Michael Bennett novel Alert. Non-fiction includes Advanced Bushcraft by Dave Canterbury offering info on survival skills in the wilderness and Do-It-Yourself Herbal Medicine by Sonoma Press editors

In the children’s area, we are seeing new Halloween books arriving, with 5 Little Pumpkins being the latest Pete the Cat book by James Dean, Otter Loves Halloween by Sam Garton as examples. We are also adding more books in the early chapter book level of Accelerated Reading, with the A to Z mysteries, LEGO chapter books and more.

Movies include Robert Duvall’s Wild Horses, Russell Crowe’s Water Diviner, Home, and Heart of the Family (next in the When Calls the Heart series)

New ‘stuff’ always being added, and we encourage you to visit the library to find out more, and we listen to and appreciate suggestions of titles and subjects you, our library users, wish to see in our collection.
