AMANDA'S PICK - Library Director

Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan

"Beginning with a curse and a promise, the story is woven through the musical notes of a harmonica, who makes it's way to 3 children during their most desperate times of need. Masterfully told and rich with historical detail, Ryan's story feels timely in her examination of hate, compassion, and understanding. Great themes of family, courage, multi-culturalism."

LAUREE'S PICK - Head of Circulation

The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

"Six month old Cora was kidnapped from her crib while her parents attended a party next door. The parents, of course, are the primary suspects. Lies, secrets, infidelity and deception make this book a page turner until the shocking end."

STACY'S PICK - Administrative Assistant

The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom

"The Time Keeper is a story that reminds us that time is precious. Too often we wish for time to speed up when we are having a bad day or stop all together. We wish wish for time to slow down when we want to bathe in whatever goodness we are feeling at the moment. This story is an excellent reminder to stop wishing for time and to enjoy every minute of every day. It is after all, a gift."

BARB'S PICK - Reference & RA Librarian

It by Stephen King

"How on Earth could I possibly describe this book? This story is positively insane and undeniably addicting. Stephen King takes horror to a whole new level in small town Derry, where an out-of-this-world monster lurks and hunts the children. The story has  unforgettable characters whom share a transcendent bond and ultimately face evil in its purest form. If you decide to read IT, you're sure in for a thrilling ride."

DENISE'S PICKCirculation Clerk

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

"My pick is the 1st book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead Until Dark. It is the introduction to Bontemps, the city that she lives in. It tells of how the community responds to vampires coming out and how everyone is now forced to acknowledge their existence. It has everything that you could need in a good read: a little bit of romance, a little bit of action, and a whole lot of fun!!"
