Library News
Things are happening at the library but they are not obvious unless you come in and look around. 
Each week more new arrivals are being prepared and placed on the shelves. Among them are some large print books and several that were special orders. If you requested a certain book, please check and see if it is in yet as many requests did not include the readers name. 
The Young Adult section has been re-arranged and is now in order and the youth section is in progress thanks to the hard work of Candice and Natalie Williams. Candice will be working full days on Thursday and is ordering the new books from Amazon, so check with her if you have a request or to see if your book is in yet. 
We are happy to report that our go-to gal, Mardell Sonnen, who incidentally took a few days off to spend time in a luxurious suite at St. Joseph hospital, is back home, on her way to recovery and will be back at the library soon. 
Story time for the pre school youngsters is still in progress every Tuesday morning from 10:30 to 11:30. This week was a pajama party complete with pillows, flashlights and lots of good stories. We would encourage you to help get the word into the community for the little ones to join in the fun and hear all the wonderful stories Miss Pollyanna has in store for them. 
If you have not had a chance to visit, please drop in and see the nice display of photography on display by artisan, Joyce Gehring Sonnen. If you or someone you know has a talent and willing to share with the public, please let us know so it can be displayed in the library. We have had a variety in the past that included paintings, photo’s, wood working. metal sculptures and pottery. 
April is National Library Month and the Library will be hosting an open house during one week so plan on attending and seeing what we have been doing down there.

Natalie's book reviews
By Natalie Williams
Two more book summaries for this week's library excerpt. These are both Young Adult books.
Shadow and Bone (Grisha Trilogy) 
By Leigh Bardugo
Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.
Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.
Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.
Shadow and Bone is the first installment in Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.
Wildwood Dancing
By Juliet Marillier
High in the Transylvanian woods, at the castle Piscul Draculi, live five daughters and their doting father. It's an idyllic life for Jena, the second eldest, who spends her time exploring the mysterious forest with her constant companion, a most unusual frog. But best by far is the castle's hidden portal, known only to the sisters. Every Full Moon, they alone can pass through it into the enchanted world of the Other Kingdom. There they dance through the night with the fey creatures of this magical realm.
But their peace is shattered when Father falls ill and must go to the southern parts to recover, for that is when cousin Cezar arrives. Though he's there to help the girls survive the brutal winter, Jena suspects he has darker motives in store. Meanwhile, Jena's sister has fallen in love with a dangerous creature of the Other Kingdom--an impossible union it's up to Jena to stop.
When Cezar's grip of power begins to tighten, at stake is everything Jena loves: her home, her family, and the Other Kingdom she has come to cherish. To save her world, Jena will be tested in ways she can't imagine--tests of trust, strength, and true love.
