February New Titles

For February, we’ve added popular new titles by powerhouse writers like Dean Koontz, Tami Hoag, Janet Evanovich & Stuart Woods.  We also have a new book by P.D. James which marks a departure from her previous work – Death Comes to Pemberley. In it, she picks up Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice characters Darcy and Elizabeth six years after their marriage.  In this spin-off, Pemberley is plunged into a mystery involving the murder of Elizabeth’s brother-in-law, Wickham. This book is also available as an ebook and audiobook on the New Hampshire Downloadable Books site.  Check out the full list of February’s New Titles to see everything added to the shelves this month.

MOBIA (Making Old Books into Art)

Join Sara Marsden & Bea Bittenbender on Saturday, February 11 at 10:30 for Altered Book workshop.
Like a journal, but instead of words, you can decorate your book in to anything you want!  It could be a place where you record your life, but with pictures! Or you can just draw, paint, and glue in whatever you want on.  Making a book beautiful is easy, all you have to do is imagine what you want the page to be like, and you can make it! Whether it be stickers and glitter, or a painting of your favorite thing. Anything you can imagine, you can make!
Basic materials are provided, but participants may want to bring along items to personalize the books.
