Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and High Meadows Branch Library has put together a display to honor the fight against the disease. Breast cancer touches nearly every one of us in some way. Most of us know someone; whether it is an aunt, mother, cousin, or friend, who has battled breast cancer.
Our display includes:
• Books that about survivors and question about breast cancer from your leading experts.
• Pamphlets about: Breast cancer in Young Women, What You Need to Know and organizations for survivors.
• Ribbon cards to celebrate survivors, those who have died and those who are still fighting. (Write a name/memory of someone you know who has breast cancer. They will be placed around the display.)

A Novel Idea: JUNE BOOK REVEAL! @High Meadows Branch Library

june book clubWe are happy to reveal that our June Book Club selection is Shari Lapeña’s The Couple Next Door.

Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all-a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. One hot summer night they are invited to a dinner party next door, and a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents, but the truth is a much more complicated story. Inside the Conti's house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets they’ve kept for years. What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family-a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness.
