But when May wakes one night sensing someone in her room, only to find her ghostly twin staring back at her, normalcy becomes a distant memory.  c.2013

April 18th, 2014 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

  What if there was a 13th zodiac sign?   You’re no longer Sagittarius, but Ophiuchus, the healer, the 13th sign.   Your personality has changed.  So has your mom’s and your best friend’s.   What about the rest of the world?   What if you were the one who accidentally unlocked the 13th sign, causing this world-altering change, and infuriating the other 12 signs?    Jalen did it, and now she must use every ounce of her strength and cunning to send the signs back where they belong. Lives, including her own, depend upon it.  c. 2013

John Gorgan-Marley and the great Easter egg hunt

April 9th, 2014 by Susan Rowe, Library Director
 

The day of the annual town Easter Egg Hunt has arrived, and Marley and his family are ready to find the biggest, most eggstravagant egg! Marley is great at spotting the eggs in trees and behind plants, but he just can’t seem to get the eggs to Cassie or Baby Louie before someone else snatches them up. So, in true Marley fashion, Marley decides to forge his own path . . . right through the doors of the town shops. Stopping into the grocery, the bakery, and the party store, Marley creates calamity wherever his paws touch. But will his wild egg chase end up with Marley finding the big, glorious egg before the hunt is over?  c. 2013
