MARCH 7 / BOOK LOVERS’ CLUB

Do you love reading and sharing books?  Join fellow bibliophiles in exploring a number of genres — fiction and non-fiction.

Twenties Girl by Sophia Kinsella, is a novel about Lara and Sadie (who is Lara’s great-aunt’s spirit) who make a hilarious sparring duo.  At first it seems as though they have nothing in common, but as the mission to find Sadie’s necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different “twenties” girls learn some surprising truths from and about each other. Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsella’s books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
