It’s that time of year again. The one where we make a resolution and stick to it for a full year. Well, try to stick to it at least.

Why not try to read a complete series of novels for 2017 ? Just be realistic about it: avid readers may choose a series of twelves books and go through it in a week, while others could choose a series of three books and take the full year to finish it up. Both options are equally good in my opinion, as long as you’re comfortable with your choice.

Here are some suggestion for you guys: the first book in a few series we have at the library, from various genres.

May 2017 be a year of discovery, adventure, happiness and great books to you.

Christmas always lights up imagination. Lots of writers, artists and filmmakers use this time of the year as a magical setting for great stories. Romance, comedy or mystery, the spirit of the season adds something special to any tale.

Go get a blanket and a hot chocolate, here are some suggestions to read or watch that will help you get in the mood for the holidays.

Here are some books you can get at the library:

Would you prefer movies? You can borrow these from the library as well. Actually you should watch “The Nightmare Before Christmas” at least once, or every year like I do. 🙂

You can’t come to the library? If you have a library card, we can come to you. These titles are on Overdrive which you can access here.

Wishing you a very happy holiday!
