At the Library for August 27th, 2019

Updated 2019/08/26




Hallie Rubenhold’s ‘The Five’ is the fascinating new biography of the five women who were killed by Jack the Ripper. Contrary to popular history, Rubenhold’s research has found that none of them were prostitutes.


‘For Whom the Ball Rolls’ is the latest hilarious entry in Dav Pilkey’s ‘Dog Man’ series.


StoryTime and Baby LapTime are both on hiatus until September.


Thank-you to everyone who participated in this year’s record breaking Summer Reading Club. Congratulations to all 708 participants—and a giant thank-you to all parents and community sponsors. If you were unable to attend last week’s closing ceremonies, you can still pick up your medal and certificate at the Library until September 30th.
