Mount Pleasant Seal at Public Library


I have always believed that if you can be anything, be kind. Today I’m feeling if you can be anything, be brief. So, here goes brief.

Natalie’s Story Time in the park is going so well. She is there each Tuesday at 11 for your preschool children. Bring a chair or a blanket for seating. Our only interruption will be August 25. There will be no story time that day. While you’re at Caldwell Park, check out Jeanette’s latest Story Walk. She has worked hard and it has been our pleasure to be able to provide these things for our children. We’re all hoping and praying that next summer we can go back to our usual programs in the library.

Some of the newest books on the bestseller list include Too Much and Never Enough. I’m pretty sure you’ve heard about this book, written by Mary L. Trump. In it, she gives her assessment of events and patterns inside her family and how she believes they shaped Donald Trump.

Popular Jeopardy host, Alex Trebek’s new book is The Answer Is. This memoir gives you a look inside the Canadian-American’s life.

In How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps by Ben Shapiro, the conservative commentator describes what he perceives as threats to American history, ideals and culture.

New this week is Memorial Drive by Natasha Trethewey. In this book, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet explores the trauma of her mother’s murder by her stepfather and how this incident impacted her work as an artist.

On the fiction front, 1st Case by James Patterson and Chris Tebetts has rocketed to the top of the list. After getting kicked out of MIT, Angela Hoot interns with the FBI and tracks the murderous siblings known as the Poet and the Engineer.

The Order is Daniel Silva’s 20th book in the Gabriel Allon series. In it, the art restorer and spy cuts his family’s vacation short to investigate whether Pope Paul VII was murdered.

Brad Thor’s newest is Near Dark. It’s number 19 in the Scot Harvath series. With a bounty on his head, Harvath makes an alliance with a Norwegian intelligence operative.

Catherine Coulter is always good for excitement. Deadlock is the 24th book in the FBI thriller series. A young wife, a psychopath and three red boxes puzzle agents Savich and Sherlock.

In The End of Her by Shari Lapena, the parents of colicky twin girls have other trouble delivered in the form of suspicions surrounding the husband’s first wife’s death.

The library is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. If you’re comfortable coming in, please do so. If not, call us and we’ll meet you in the parking lot at noon and five p.m. with your book, cd and dvd selections. Happy reading!
