New! Adult Summer Reading Club

Adult Summer Reading Club photoSummer Reading’s not just for kids, grown-ups love to read, too! So, we’re launching our first Adult Summer Reading Club.

Starting June 25, every book you read this summer can earn you a chance at a prize. Just fill out a ballot for each book you read, and drop it in the ballot box at the Information Desk. We’ll draw for prizes every week throughout the summer, and draw for our Grand Prize when the contest concludes on September 2. The Grand Prize includes two tickets to see Jennifer Robson, author of Somewhere in France and Moonlight Over Paris, when she visits the Library this November.

No registration is necessary. Happy Reading!

Great News for James Patterson Fans

It seems like forever since James Patterson has had a new book out for adults.* Take heart, JP fans, because Patterson is picking up the pace. He’ll be releasing three books for adults in June.

cross killzoo 2Games

His new Bookshots venture (books of 150 pages or less, published in paperback) will kick off in early June with the release of two titles. Cross Kill is an Alex Cross story, and Zoo 2 is a science fiction thriller sequel to Zoo.

Then, at the end of June comes the full length The Games, in Patterson’s Private series.

And the pace continues through the summer, with new Bookshots and full-length novels coming out each month.

Patterson is a hard author to keep up with, but don’t worry, we have a search for that. This will send you to our catalog and show all the upcoming Pattersons on order and ready for your reservations.

*Not since early May, when 15th Affair was published.
