Get a Book Date for Valentine's Day!

Books will always love you and be there for you. It’s one of those comforting facts of life. In a lot of ways they’re better than people. I mean, they don’t wake you up in the night, they wait until you're ready for them, they don’t eat your food, and the list goes on. So, in recognition of that fact, we recommend that instead of making sure you have a date tonight, you should celebrate this Valentine’s Day right by visiting the library and getting a great book to read. Here’s some of our recommendations to try:

The Greatest Love Story of All

Let's be honest: a lot of supposedly grand love stories tend to, well, let us down in the end. But there is one special relationship that never truly let's us down. What's that you ask? As any good bibliophile knows, the answer, of course, is books. Their stories can sweep you away, provide a laugh, a cry, an escape-- and you don't even have to take it out to dinner. Valentine's Day is upon us once again, so here are a few titles, for kids, teens and adults, to enjoy.

 

 

Book Club for Adults

Calling Me HomeFor our next meeting on Wednesday, February 20, at 1 pm, we are reading “Calling Me Home” by Julie Kibler. Copies are available for checkout at the library. It’s about Isabelle, an 89-year-old white woman, who asks a huge favor of her hairdresser, Dorrie, a black single mom. Isabelle wants Dorrie to drop everything and drive her from Texas to a funeral in Cincinnati. Tomorrow. With no explanation. Dorrie reluctantly agrees.

February Book Clubs at Northwest Branch Library

Good news readers, there are several book clubs that meet regularly at the Northwest Branch Library. Did you know that there are several benefits associated with actively attending a book club? Book clubs have been known to decrease stress and are good for those customers who are of retirement age. Book Clubs can help participants gain new perspective on an issue, make new friends and to hopefully become more involved in their community. Also, if you're an aspiring writer, regular book club participation can help improve or expand your own writing skills. Perhaps the best reason to particpiate in an active book club is that it can give a reader the push they need to finish that book.
