A look at what's happening at Willard

What we’re enjoying this month

This month, library staff has finished a few titles, started new ones, and awed over movies new and old.

Take a listen to:

If you liked Throne of Glass and The Night Circus, you'll enjoy this mystery of two sisters, their missing mother, and the magical world of Caraval. Available in print and audio.

Young children will love the tale of Rusty, a house cat, who joins a clan of street cats and trains as a warrior to battle other cat clans. If a house cat warrior is not your cup of tea, try Kathryn Lasky's Guardians of Ga'Hoole series about a young owl's journey to save his home from villainous owls bent on destroying their way of life. Both are available for download through Hoopla and Overdrive.

Keep an eye out for:

Matsumoto is Japanese Buddhist monk who, in this short but inspiring piece, sheds some light on how you can find your peace through tidying up. Look for this title in the New Book Alcove.

One of our librarians recently became acquainted with Burke's fiction and only has this to say: They are "beautifully written masterpieces" of "literary crime fiction in rural America." You may find Burke's latest release, The New Ibreria Blues, in the New Book Alcove and on the best-seller table.

Drew Manning shares some tips on the Keto diet as well as his experiences with going from "fit to fat to fit."

This best-seller takes place in the height of the 1960s rock 'n' roll scene and centers around aspiring singer, Daisy Jones, and the leader of an up and coming band, The Six.
