What’s New in the Library
There are several new items in the library — and not all of them are books. The children’s section features a brand-new bookshelf built by Steve Fillo, with the assistance of Arroyo, Niles, Ramon, and Rosendo. A huge thanks to them (and especially to Steve) for this great new addition, which now houses the Young Adult collection and the Juvenile Fiction collection.
Also new is a display of books new to the library, on a bookshelf straight ahead when you come in the door. Books new to the library will be shelved there for a while, before being moved to their appropriate places in the library. The shelf contains both Fiction and Non-fiction books.
And, as has become usual, there are new books in the library. They include:

Book Share & Review Group
Some of these new books might possibly be shared at the next gathering of the Book Share & Review Group, which will happen on Tuesday, August 22, 1:00 PM. Whether it’s to share one of our new books, or some other book that you have read — or whether you just want to come and hear what others have been reading — you are invited to the gathering.
