Longview Library Invites Readers to Check Out These Books

A great big thank you and hug to Saje Maquski for her most generous support of the library this year. We really appreciate it, and marvel that she can raise so much money from her Village Markets each year. Again, thank you.

We have some paintings by Nicki Denette displayed in the library. Nicki has studied under Rocky Barstad, and her speciality is Western themes. Her horses are magnificent. Her latest is “Earl’s 2012 Ranch Branding”. Do come in and see them. Nicki lives in Caley.

On Thursday, February 20th. from 1:30 to 3pm, Lorraine Andrews will give an author talk about her book, Ranching Under the Arch and The Cowboy Trail. It is filled with history of the many Foothill’s ranches down through the years.

The New York City Library has released the titles of the 10 most checked out books in its 125 year history. It might surprise you to know that children’s books are the ones most circulated. This is because they are shorter and therefore returned more quickly, and because parents, for years, have read stories to teach their children morals, values, compassion and an understanding of the world.

RBdigital now includes 3700 magazines available for you to browse. Some of the magazines are The New Yorker and HGTV. If you want to learn more about this our Librarian, Lynda, will be happy to help you.

New books to the library are:

Vendetta In Death by J.D. Robb

Keto for Life: Reset Your Biological Clock in 21 Days  for Increased Longevity.

The Boy by Tami Hoag

For poetry lovers, Rupi Kaur has a new book, the sun and her flowers. Her first book, milk and honey, sold  millions of copies and was self-published. Her poems are touching, wise and explore life’s journey.

A Spark of Light  by Jodi Picoult doesn’t disappoint. Picoult carefully and thoroughly researches a controversial issue of our times and weaves a story that both enlightens and challenges the reader. The Spark of Light is about the pros and cons of abortion. It explores the ethical dilemma faced by many women.

Happy Reading
