Thrills & Chills Wednesday
Summer is practically here. We can feel it in the air -- it's sunny and warm, school's out and summer plans are brewing. Below are some thrilling and chilling summer reads as well as ideas and programs to help you plan ahead, chill out and enjoy.
Thrillers are very emotional books. Often it can feel like you, as the reader, are on a roller coaster. This is great when you're feeling overwhelmed and need a quick escape. Slip between the pages of a well-written thriller and you’ll forget all about your own issues…at least for a little while. Check out these Thrill and Chills for Summer eBooks. They may be downloaded in the Libby by OverDrive app or viewed online on our OverDrive page.
