Spring Projects

With the arrival of spring and warmer, friendlier temperatures homeowners are gearing up for those do-it-yourself improvement projects we've dreamed about all winter. Personally, as the days are getting noticeably longer, so is my wish list for projects I'd love to do around the house (more like, have my husband do)!

The library has lots of new how-to books to help you along with your to-do lists and projects.

    New Juvenile Fiction

    Visit the library to see what's new. Here's a sneak peek:

    Two-Minute Drill, by Mike Lupica
    Chris Conlan is the coolest kid in sixth grade—the golden-armed quarterback of the football team and the boy all the others look up to. Scott Parry is the new kid, the boy with the huge brain, but with feet that trip over themselves. These two boys may seem like an odd couple, but each has a secret that draws them together, and proves that the will to succeed is even more important than raw talent.

    Philippa Fisher and the Dream Maker's Daughter, by Liz Kessler
    Philippa Fisher reunites with her spunky fairy godsister in a sparkling new adventure from the creator of Emily Windsnap.
    Philippa Fisher is trying to have a good time on vacation with her parents, but she’s feeling lonely. When she meets Robyn, a girl with sad eyes and a strict father, she enjoys the company, but can’t help wondering what Robyn and her dad might be hiding. Meanwhile, Daisy, Philippa’s best friend (and fairy godsister), sneaks into her former charge’s room for a visit, but now has a furtive new mission and must dash away. Philippa longs to uncover the reasons behind her friends’ odd behavior, but friendships can be tricky when there are secrets — and unexpected danger — involved! Best-selling author Liz Kessler is back with a sympathetic story about navigating between old friends and new, a tale full of mystery, whimsy, and all the magic tween readers could wish for.

    Who Stole Grandma's Million-Dollar Pumpkin Pie?, by Martha Freeman 
    Martha Freeman has cooked up a hilarious, action-packed addition to her popular Chickadee Court mystery series.
    Eleven-year-old sleuth Alex Parakeet and his best friend, Yasmeen, are on a new case—a yummy one. The only copy of a valuable recipe has disappeared from the Parakeet kitchen days before Alex's father is scheduled to appear on a TV cooking show. Since word has gotten out that a celebrity chef will be filming a "tailgate" special from the college's parking lot before the big Thanksgiving weekend game, plenty of locals are plotting to get on TV. Could a neighbor or even a friend have gone so far as to steal the recipe, hoping to get Mr. Parakeet's spot?
