Go on a blind date with a book this February for National Library Lovers Month!

02/22/2018 - 02/28/2018

Do you like surprises? Would you like help deciding what to read next? Are you distracted by cover art that inaccurately portrays the content of a book? Let us take away the trouble of a decision and set you up with a date. Go on a Blind Date with a book! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’ll select a variety of books, wrap them all up in ‘oh so secretive’ wrapping paper and you won’t know the ‘identity’ of your blind date till you get it home. Will it be fiction or non-fiction? Funny, informative, a mystery, true-crime? You may choose any wrapped book from our “Blind Date with a Book” display.  Most books selected from Library Journal’s “Best Books of 2017.”  After your date, fill out a book evaluation form to select one free book from the Friends of the Library Book sale.

Off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, comes a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, now testing the limits of an already crowded sea. In a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive. New England’s experiences serve as an important milestone for all of us who care about the ocean. Please register now by calling or stopping by the circulation desk.  Drop-ins welcome.

Dead Wake

The Last Crossing of the Lusitania

On May 1, 1915, with WWI entering its tenth month, a luxury ocean liner as richly appointed as an English country house sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and infants. The passengers were surprisingly at ease, even though Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone. For months, German U-boats had brought terror to the North Atlantic. But the Lusitania was one of the era’s great transatlantic “Greyhounds”—the fastest liner then in service—and her captain, William Thomas Turner, placed tremendous faith in the gentlemanly strictures of warfare that for a century had kept civilian ships safe from attack.
