The Island of Lonely Books
Well at least one thing this year is still normal; there have been lots of great new books published!

We tried spreading the word through book bundles and sharing the new book lists, but here's some books looking to be loved and enjoyed that you may not have noticed! We even included two audiobooks in case you prefer those.

Reserve through your catalog account, over the phone, or through email!
Curbside is Inside!

Pickup: All items are now inside our main entrance during normal hours. Please once you have been notified that you have materials ready for pickup, come as soon as possible as we are running out of room!

Returns: Please place in the drop box at any time!

We empty the drop box at the end of each business day and then begin quarantining those materials for 3 calendar days.

This suicide prevention training is for all adult members in your community and the QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. The signs of crisis are all around us. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, and to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know. You will gain skills that enable you to support yourself and your neighbors, friends and family, receive available resources and where to go for help.
 
Note: Some people who have experienced a recent loss of a close family member or friend, may find attending a suicide prevention training to be difficult. Remember your self-care is so important and that comes first.
