Have you heard, auto renewals are coming to the Library on May 15! What does that mean for you? If you have an item checked out and there is no one else on the waiting list for it, it will automatically renew for you! If you provided us with your email, you will receive a notice two days before the item is due to let you know if it can be renewed.  If you don't have an email in your account, make sure to add one so you can take advantage of this new feature. Unfortunately, if you don't have email address, you won't be able to receive these notices but your items will still be renewed if able.

Artwork of Susan Hennelly

An exhibit for the month of May

A statement from the artist:

"I paint what I see or when the spirit moves me.
It can be an assignment or a teaching tool,
    Express an idea or emotion when words fail.
I love drawing with a brush. 
I love the challenge of balancing shapes & color and spaces.
The pigment when mixed with water can be so transparent and illuminating.
Sometimes I need to sketch a plan or take a photo
   So that when I begin painting I know where I’m going.
(Of course I could end up in a surprising new place)
I want it to be simple and straightforward.
No muddy waters.      Harmonious."

Book Discussion Group

Christina Dalcher

Set in an America where half the population has been silenced, VOX is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter. On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed more than 100 words daily, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial--this can't happen here. Not in America. Not to her. Soon women can no longer hold jobs. Girls are no longer taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words a day, but now women only have one hundred to make themselves heard. For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.
