Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larsen is next Book Club Selection

“The winds were mild; the skies were clear. On Friday, September 7th, 1900, most of the thirty seven thousand residents of Galveston were looking forward to a quiet weekend. Within two days, however, more than a fifth of them would be dead, and their city of splendid homes & broad clean streets, their city of oleanders and roses and palms would be swept away or reduced to rubble. In hardcover, Erik Larson’s Isaac’s Storm brought the devastating Galveston hurricane of 1900 to present consciousness.” (Barnes & Noble review)

Come in out of the cold on Monday, Dec. 15 at 6:30 for a book discussion and light snacks.isaacs storm

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks.
