Spring is in the air, somewhere! While it appears to be ignoring the North Country so far, it gives us a bit more indoor time to sit by the fire and enjoy some good reading. Our rakes will be found and used soon enough! New selections this week include an impressive collection of thrillers and mysteries by some of the best writers in that genre. Three biographies also round out this week’s new arrivals! Starred * items are on the New York Times Best Seller List.

Did you know that the Wead Library has a really strong collection of books about knitting? Many books have patterns and others are more instructional. This week there are two new arrivals on this topic. If you have caught the bug to “cast on” with your knitting, please come check them out. You are also welcome to join our knitting and craft group, “Needles and Hooks” that meets on the first and third Saturdays of the month here at the Wead Library at 10:00-11:00AM. It’s a lot of fun and there are some really experienced knitters and crafters to help you along. Here are our non-fiction selections.
