Are you a fan of audio books? They can certainly make a long drive more pleasant. They are also good accompaniment to more mundane household tasks. Others  find them an ideal way to keep up on their favorite authors instead of sitting with a book or tablet. For our audio fans, we would like you to know that a generous patron recently gifted us with  over 600 audio books that were only listened to once. We are doing our best to process them as quickly as we can and have about half the collection up on the shelves.  We have all the most popular writers of the day and many more yet to be shelved. Please stop by the Wead Library and check out this  generous gift. We have the best patrons!!!

Now for this weeks new book arrivals:   The mysterious Elena Ferrante has written the fourth and final book in her series of “Neapolitan Novels.” We have non-fiction books about politics, race, immigration and more. Two great biographies are on our new arrivals shelf, one about Henry Kissinger and the other about Rose Kennedy, a family member sadly kept secret by the Kennedy Dynasty for many years. There are new thrillers from Anne Perry, Ted Bell, John Sandford and others. Here is our latest list.
