Series Opening Books

Apart from lengthy books, which I wrote about here, extended time at home is also a great time to dive into a new series. The possibilities are endless, but here’s a selection of first books in popular series that you can get through our e-resources. If there's a hold list on one source, see if it's available with no wait on another!

As we continue to battle the Coronavirus pandemic, businesses have had to make adjustments and incredibly difficult decisions. Whether it meant switching to a work-from-home model, doing curbside pickup and delivery only, or deciding to close altogether, businesses have been struggling and business owners may still be trying to figure out what to do during these difficult times. Lynda.com has made some new courses available that are meant to help businesses during this pandemic.

As we shelter in place, we all might be going a little stir crazy trying to find things to do.

On May 1, Creativebug added a new video called "Daily Creativity at Home." It is a video series with a variety of projects that use materials commonly found at home.

As we continue to stay at home and stay strong during this pandemic, the library is going to start offering live virtual programs through Zoom. For each live program that we do, there will be a unique URL that you can click on to connect to that Zoom session. The URL will most likely either be posted in the description of the program on the event calendar on the library website, or it will be emailed to each patron that signs up for the program. As we schedule these live programs, we'll provide exact details for each one.

Everyone's a little bit Irish on March 17

Not only is March 17 St. Patrick’s Day, but the whole month of March is Irish-American Heritage Month in order to coincide with holiday. What better time than this to dive into some Irish fiction? For a relatively small country, Ireland is a hub of culture so these books are just a tiny sampling of the great literature about and coming out of the country. Literary fiction, comedy, cozy mysteries, grittier mysteries, historical- there’s something for everyone.
