Yoda Says, “Get a Book, You Must!”

Come check out our new arrivals…we have the new manga DEATH NOTE, plus some more ATTACK ON TITAN…and we have the newest part of the DIVERGENT series, ALLEGIANT. In the non-fiction area, we have the inspiring story of an Afghan girl, I AM MALALA, and how she fought the Taliban for women’s rights. We have bios on  SELENA and ADELE, plus hot new fiction by Rainbow Rowell, ELEANOR AND PARK and FANGIRL. For those who like romance, we have a new Simone Elkeles book, WILD CARDS and for the vampire lovers, we have Richelle Mead’s spinoff series from VAMPIRE ACADEMY, BLOODLINES.  Come check out some books for break!


Stock up on books for the holidays!


wintersceneIt’s that time again kids…time for hot cocoa, a warm fireplace, and dancing gophers with reindeer antlers! Yes, it’s the holidays! Here at the Monarch Library, I’m very thankful for the great success of our Book Swap and Sale, and now we’re moving forward toward Winter Break. Stock on on great books to read now so you have something to do when your video games get boring!  We have a bunch of holiday-themed books on display in the library, including the very, very funny HOLIDAYS ON ICE by David Sedaris. If you like romance, we have SILVER BELLS by Luann Rice, and some other great stories of love during the holidays. And there’s always the illustrated A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens!

Anyway, come see the lighted tree with its homemade book ornaments, and enjoy the library!
