Kid's Book Group Reads Prairie Evers for June


Kid's Book Group Reads "Prairie Evers" for June 17th
Book Bunchers in grades 3-5 read Prairie Evers by Ellen Airgood for their June 17th gathering at 4:00.  The book discussion will be followed by a short activity. Books are available in the Young Readers' Room on the lower level of the library.

About the Book
Prairie Evers is finding that socialization isn't all it's cracked up to be. She's been homeschooled by her granny and has learned the most from traipsing through nature. But now she has to attend public school, and feels just like her chickens—cooped up and subject to the pecking order. School is a jolt for Prairie until she meets Ivy, her first true friend. But while raising chickens and the great outdoors have given Prairie wisdom and perspective, nothing has prepared her for the give and take of friendship. When Prairie finds out that Ivy's home may not be the best place for Ivy, Prairie must corral all her optimism and determination to hatch a plan to help.

Tweens Read Steelheart for June 11th


Tweens Read "Steelheart" for June 11, 2015
Page Turners' June selection is Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. The 6th-8th grade book discussion group meets up on Thursday, June 11th at 2:30PM.  For extra convenience, participants may ride bus # 3 from LMS to the library.

Copies of the book are available in both the Teen Area and Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary people extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics.

Epics are no friends of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man, you must crush his will.


Now, in what was once Chicago, an astonishingly powerful Epic named Steelheart has installed himself as emperor. Steelheart possesses the strength of ten men and can control the elements. It is said that no bullet can harm him, no sword can split his skin, and no fire can burn him. He is invincible. Nobody fights back . . . nobody but the Reckoners.


A shadowy group of ordinary humans, the Reckoners spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in.


When Steelheart came to Chicago, he killed David’s father. For years, like the Reckoners, David has been studying, and planning, and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience.


He has seen Steelheart bleed.

And he wants revenge.

While out?on a run?in the middle of the night, he encounters a young girl on the seaside boardwalk. Barefoot and terrified, she's running from a group of heavily armed men with one clear goal: to kill her. Dryden learns that the twelve-year-old can only remember the past two months, during which she's been kept in a secret prison by forces within the government.

Eastern Coyote Presentation on Tuesday, May 19th


Eastern Coyote Presentation on Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Thousands of eastern coyotes live among us.  You may have seen or heard them in your own neighborhood.  Some fear them as predators, others are facinated by their presence and love to hear their howl.

No mater which side of the fence you sit on, you'll want to join us on Tuesday, May 19th at 7:00PM in the Campbell High School Auditorium for Becoming Wolf: The Eastern Coyote in New England.

Chris Schadler of Project Coyote discusses the facinating ecology and surprising behavior of the eastern coyote, and how we can coexist.

Schadler is the New Hampshire and Vermont Representative for Project Coyote, a national group promoting coexistence with coyotes through science, education and advocacy.  She divides her time between teaching on the NH Seacoast, working on her book and talking to groups about the eastern coyote and eastern wolf.

This event is free and open to the public.
