Book Spotlight


Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Genre:Science Fiction/Fantasy

book jacket for Mockingjay Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry and wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

Check out the other Hunger Games trilogy books.

Thanks for helping us make this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, "Make Waves," one of the best ever. We had a lot of fun and hope you did too.

We’re looking forward to seeing you again next summer. We will have more great programs and prizes for our theme “You are Here.”

Don't forget that the libraries offer fun programs all year, so check the online calendars, this newsletter, and WORD magazine for upcoming events.
