The library has all the books from the Twilight series, now made even more famous by the
movies based on the books by Stephanie Meyers. This has peaked an interest in vampire
stories, so those who need more can find another series by L.J. Smith,
Night World. Or, if
you want to read about a shapeshifter who turns into a wolf, you can try
Shiver by Maggie
Stiefvater. Of course, many kids are reading the stories by Jeff Kinney who has written The
Diary of a Wimpy Kid and many sequels.
Adult reading ranges from books on permaculture to
True Compass- Edward Kennedy's
memoir,
Shanghai Girls by Lisa See, Michael's Crichton's last book- Pirate Latitudes,
and the seventh book in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series -
An Echo in the Bone. And
many more!

The library will be having its next Third Fridays Film & Book Discussion: Slumdog
Millionaire on Jan. 15 at 5:45 pm on the 2nd floor of the Memorial Building.  People can
bring a bag supper. Cider and sweets will be provided. People can pick up books now to
read. You don't have to read the book to see the film.
The third selection for the series is Slumdog Millionaire by Vikus Swarup. The narrator is
a poor, uneducated waiter named Ram. He becomes a contestent on a TV show, but after
winning a billion rupees, he is arrested in the belief that he must have cheated. In jail he
shares his hardscrabble life with his lawyer. Each chapter in his life corresponds to how he
could know the answers. His life journey is at times harsh, at times comic, but also, as one
reviewer states, "the entire story is about that one in a billion chance." It gives a glimpse
of India. The film won best picture in 2009.
Kids programs continue in January including the weekly preschool storytime every
Wednesday at 10 am. Rose Nash, a writer and writing professor at Johnson State College
(and formerly an English Teacher at Hazen Union) will lead a Young Writers' Group on
Fridays from 3:30 to 4:30 pm starting January 22 through April 2. The group is for writers
aged 11 - 18. Rose received her B.A. and M.A. from Middlebury College. After
graduating she taught on a kibbutz in Isreal for two years. She is currently working on a
novel. There is no cost for the program, but preregistration is requested. Call the library
at 472-5948 or email the Youth Services Librarian, Susan O'Connell at
