This week's Book of the week is Seven Days of Us
 by  Francesca Hornak
After returning from treating an epidemic abroad, Olivia is told that she must be quarantined. Since she is quarantined in her old family home during the holidays, her whole family is quarantined as well. That many family members with strong opinions, long histories, and active lives would go crazy being cooped up with each other, and that's what happens. A cozy holiday read that excels at capturing stir-crazy family life.

November 14, 2017
Hi! What's up? What's going on with you? OK, you can't respond through the newsletter, but stop by and we can chat. You can also chat with anyone else here at the library at the time. Gone are the days that you would get shushed as soon as you open your mouth at the library. It's a social hub now, with people working, reading, and talking in harmony. Just don't yell, we still shush yelling.

November is here, check out all our great events!
