Readers of the Round Table Read Rebel Fire for November


The Readers of the Round Table, a high school book discussion group, read  Rebel Fire by Andrew Lane for their November 20th gathering at 4:15PM.

Copies of the book are available in the Teen Area on the upper level of the library. 

Need a ride? Campbell High School students can take the late bus from school to the library.

About the Book
Fourteen-year-old Sherlock Holmes knows that Amyus Crowe, his mysterious American tutor, has some dark secrets. But he didn’t expect to find John Wilkes Booth, the notorious assassin, apparently alive and well in England --- and Crowe somehow mixed up in it. When no one will tell you the truth, sometimes you have to risk all to discover it for yourself. And so begins an adventure that will take Sherlock across the Atlantic, to the center of a deadly web --- where a friend is in peril and a defeated army threatens to rise again.

Andrew Lane’s exciting second case for the teenage Sherlock leads the young detective to America, straight into the heart of a shocking conspiracy.

Book Bunch Reads The Fast and the Furriest for November


Book Bunchers in grades 3-5 read Andy Behrens's The Fast and the Furriest for their November 20th 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
Your best friend can really change your life, even if he's a dog: That's the message of this funny and inspiring story. Everyone in the Pugh family is athletic...except for 12-year-old Kevin. He prefers video games to sports, and he is determined to never play another game of kickball in his life. Fortunately, Kevin has some equally lazy company: his dog, Cromwell, who once passed out while chasing a squirrel. Then Cromwell sees a dog-agility competition on TV, and soon he's jumping through hoops, running everywhere, and dragging Kevin outside to the nearest obstacle course.

Thanks to some financial backing from Kevin's best friend and some help from a mysterious dog trainer, it looks like Cromwell might actually have a chance at the big canine athletic competition. Can Kevin help his crazy dog reach his dream, and maybe even learn a few things about himself along the way?

Page Turners Read Heir Apparent for November


book cover
Vivian Vande Velde's Heir Apparent is the November selection for our 6th-8th grade book discussion group. Don't miss the meet-up on November 13th at 2:30PM.  Ride LMS bus #3 to the library for extra convenience.

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

About the Book
In the virtual reality game Heir Apparent, there are way too many ways to get killed -- and Giannine seems to be finding them all. Unless she can get the magic ring, find the stolen treasure, answer the dwarf's dumb riddles, impress the head-chopping statue, charm the army of ghosts, fend off the barbarians, and defeat the man eating dragon, she'll never win. And if she doesn't win, she will die -- for real this time.
While playing a total immersion virtual reality game of kings and intrigue, fourteen-year-old Giannine learns that demonstrators have damaged the equipment to which she is connected, and she must win the game quickly or be damaged herself.
