The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson

In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life.  From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America.

Home by Marilynne Robinson

Glory Boughton, aged thirty-eight, has returned to Gilead to care for her dying father.  Soon her brother, Jack–the prodigal son of the family, gone for twenty years–comes home too, looking for refuge and trying to make peace with a past littered with tormenting trouble and pain.

2014 Scholastic Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair is all set up and ready to go on Monday, December 1st.  It runs through December 6th and will be open during regular library hours.  We also have an online website if you can’t make it in to the actual book fair.

We received lots of easy reader type books, several new series books, and lots of activity kits and cookbooks.  There are also several National Geographic and Guinness Record books.  We also have several Lego books and easy reader Lego books.  The tables are all full.

We still have a few openings left for volunteers who want to help work at the fair.

All proceeds from the Book Fair go towards the purchase of books for the children’s area.

2014 Scholastic Book Fair

The Harlan Community Library will be hosting a 2014 Scholastic Book Fair “Sir Readalot’s Castle” from Monday, December 1st through Saturday, December 6th in the community room during regular library hours.  All proceeds go towards the purchase of books in the children’s and youth departments.

There will be something for everyone, from Picture books and Easy Readers for the younger children to the new Wimpy Kid book for the older grade levels to books for adult readers. The books are available to purchase in every price range, interest, and reading level.  It’s like a mini-bookstore where kids and families can shop for their very own books.  And you get to take them with you that very day.  No waiting for them to arrive.  You can even shop online if you don’t have time to come in.  Just check out scholastic.com/fair  Use the change state – Scholastic Book Fair  Chairperson’s Toolkit (bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/cptoolkit/fairfinderST.do?method=showState option)

These Scholastic books would make great Christmas or birthday gifts.  There are also items that could be used as stocking stuffers for Christmas.  We will have a free gift wrap table set up for everyone’s convenience.

Don’t miss this opportunity to light up someone’s face with the excitement of reading a good book!  Mark your calendar!  Payment methods – Cash or Check.

Volunteers are needed to help run the book fair.  The schedule is set up in one hour shifts.  If you are interested in helping, please give the library a call.

See you at the Book Fair!
