New Children's Materials
If you've visited the library recently, you may have noticed some of the new items in the children's room. More games, STEAM toys, and check-out materials will be available in the fall.

Right now we have sensory mats, a hopscotch rug, number and alphabet stepping stones, and a large Lincoln Log set! All of this was made possible by grant funding from the Holmberg Foundation.
Checkmate in Berlin
by Giles Milton


Throughout, Checkmate in Berlin recounts the lively, immersive story of the race to seize Berlin in the aftermath of World War II as it’s never been told before. A story of unprecedented human drama, it’s one that had a profound, and often underestimated, shaping force on the modern world – one that’s still felt today.
Lone Star Law
by Louis L'Amour & Elmer Kelton

 
Explore the proud heritage of the elite Texas Rangers in these exhilarating, white-knuckled stories. From historical tales of outlaws and rustlers to modern thrillers of tracking serial killers with the latest technology.
 
Love People Use Things: Because the Opposite Never Works
by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus
 
In this book, Millburn and Nicodemus move past simple decluttering to show how minimalism makes room to reevaluate and heal the seven essential relationships in our lives: stuff, truth, self, money, values, creativity, and people.
