Easter Break Recommendations from the Library

We’re almost there—only hours left before an Easter break we hope is full of some well needed rest and relaxation. The library will be open until 2 pm tomorrow, Thursday, March 24, then on Saturday the 26 from 8 am to 8 pm. Stop by to check out a DVD from our media center (we’ll leave the popcorn to you), or peruse our popular fiction collection to find your new favorite read.

If you’re looking for something that fits with the holiday theme, we’ve got some recommendations for you.

For those of you spending time with young children, Easter Chimes: Stories for Easter and the Spring Season is a classic collection of stories perfect for this time of year.


In the mood for a mystery? The Cruelest Month, found in our Popular Literature collection, has all you need for the perfect page-turner: a small town, a haunted house, and a mysterious death.
