Sometimes our books get damaged and we have to recycle them.  Unfortunately sometimes these books are part of a series or from a popular author.  The library sometimes reorders books when they come out in paperback.

We've just received new paperback copies of several of Dorothea Benton Frank's books.  We also added titles by James Patterson, David Baldacci and Louise Penney. 

Check our catalog to find books that you may have missed when they were first released.

Thanks for reading!

It's hard to believe that September is almost here.  Don't miss out on any of our great programing for this month.
We have a new program starting this month.  Senior Social Hour will have its first meeting in the auditorium Monday, 10-11 a.m. September 14.  Come join us for a chat, coffee and a breakfast treat.
Meet new people and learn more about what the library has to offer.


Library Card Sign-up Month
A library card is the coolest card – September is Library Card Sign-up Month
Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the CCPL joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a free library card.
Resources at CCPL are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement. In addition to using your card to check out books, DVDs and CDs, a library card gives you free access to thousands of downloadable eBooks, audio books, eMagazines, music and music videos. It’s also your gateway to dozens of free, online databases that can help you learn a new language, write a winning resume, make a smart investment decision and even research your family’s genealogy.  
Today’s libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where students can collaborate using new technologies or just relax with peers. 
“Our library provides access and programs for students of all ages,” says Doug Henderson. “For preschool age children we offer early literacy Babygarten and preschool storytimes to encourage school readiness, for older children and teens we supplement education with hands-on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) programs and for older teens we have information and tools to help prepare for college and mentoring programs. There’s really something for everyone and it’s all free with a library card.”

Did you enjoy the series by Swedish author Stieg Larsson? Unfortunately Larsson died after writing three volumes in the series.
 Did you wish the story of Lisbeth Salander would continue?  Well, your wish has come true. The book "Girl in a Spider's Web" by David Lagercrantz will be released in September and is in the library catalog, so you may place a hold on the title!

The book continues the story of rebellious tech genius hacker Lizbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomqvist. The duo receive a tip that will be vital to the United States. 

If you haven't read the series, here are the first three titles: "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"; "Girl Who Played with Fire"; and "Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest."

There are also films by the same titles.  Three are in Swedish with English subtitles, and one "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" in English stars Daniel Craig.

Call 843-849-6161 if you'd like to place you name on the list for this book which is sure to be popular.  Thanks for reading.
