We have relocated the local author novels around the corner near the copy machine.
Too busy to read books? Try our audiobook collections. Makes a long commute a bit more bearable and always helps pass the time while doing chores.
We finally have a modest collection of graphic novels for adults! You can find them on the main floor with new adult fiction!
Once in a while you might find an article written in the East Bay Newspapers by our staff. The column is called Library Libations. If you’ve missed them, you can read them here:
The Pearl That Broke Its Shell
by Nadia Hashimi
Outstanding. Just totally outstanding. Fans of Khaled Hosseini’s Kite Runner & A Thousand Splendid Suns will love this one, perhaps even MORE. I will be honest – I almost quit. I had a really hard time dealing with the way women/girls are treated in this book. I am glad I didn’t stop. These are some amazing people & amazing stories. And who knows – perhaps they were inspired by true stories? We will never know.
Do you ever feel like you should be trying a new author or genre, but never know where to start? Do you want to read something outside of your comfort zone? Do you feel like you might be missing a really good book that is tucked away in our stacks?! Well our staff can help! Every couple of weeks our librarians think of themes and place them on display. Our staff pick/display area is located on the main floor near the stacks. Don’t miss them!
