January’s Books

Recently seen on social media and in the news - Pepsi (an official sponsor of SuperBowl 53) billboards are taking over Atlanta.  We cannot guarantee what beverages (Coke and/or Pepsi) will be served at and during the Super Bowl this coming weekend but we can guarantee new books coming to a local library shelf near you in the Twin Lakes Library System. Come into one of our two branches to speak with a staff member about requesting one of our newest arrivals. All the most recently cataloged items can also be accessed online.  As always, we provide a monthly new books shelf on featuring summaries and reader reviews of the books on the New Books List (available here and in print at our branches). We do not officially endorse (and they do not endorse us) but many of our staff and local patrons use this wonderful online social media book reading and author community for all things books and book-related.

Are They Here Yet?

Happy New Year!

We have entered into 2019. Our final order of 2018 New Books list is available. Titles are coming in and being cataloged. You can read about them on our Goodreads bookshelf, order them through the PINES catalog, or request them at the Circulation Desk.

Don't worry. While this was the last new books order of 2018 it is most certainly not the last order of 2018 published books. However, we are not always able to order all the books requested by everyone for our local library shelves and, therefore, we are working to provide additional electronic services such as rbdigital and hoopla.

It has been a while. June is one of our busiest months but we have not been neglecting you. PROMISE! Summer Reading Club is coming to a close here in a couple of weeks. The kids start back to school at the beginning of August. We have celebrated our day of independence. There are still more summer shindigs and events to attend but you also need some quiet time to yourself. We provide the entertainment. Check out these lovely thrilling and sometimes very informational reads, all 187 of them (give or take a title). These books will soon be cataloged at a Twin Lakes Library System branch near you. I recommend requesting your most wanted titles to ensure the opportunity to check it out.
