STAFF PICK

Your Name.

by Makoto Shinkai

Mitsuha, a high school girl living in a small town in the mountains, has a dream that she's a boy living in Tokyo. Taki, a high school boy in Tokyo, dreams he's a girl living in a quaint little mountain town. Sharing bodies, relationships, and lives, the two become inextricably interwoven--but are any connections truly inseverable in the grand tapestry of fate?

Cool Things to Borrow

Library Telescope Program

Thanks to the Island County Astronomical Society

The Mount Vernon Public Library has added two Orion StarBlast 4.5 inch telescopes that you can check out with your library card for two weeks.

The telescopes were donated by Island County Astronomical Society and they help support it with occasional classes and their own meetings to share information and activities. This is part of a national program established by the New Hampshire Astronomical Society.

It is a great family activity and there lots of books in our library to introduce you to the skies. Each telescope is loaned out for two weeks at a time. We anticipate requests to be high throughout the spring and summer months.

To be placed on the list to check it out or for more information, please call us at (360) 336-6209.

OPRAH'S PICK

Behold the Dreamers

by Imbolo Mblue

Oprah has another big announcement for book lovers: A new Oprah's Book Club selection! The latest pick is Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue. As Oprah says, "It's got everything that's grabbing the headlines in America right now. It's about race and class, the economy, culture, immigration and the danger of the us-versus-them mentality."

STAFF PICK

The Silent Corner

by Dean Koontz

"I very much need to be dead." These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for--but took his own life. In the aftermath, his widow, Jane Hawk, does what all her grief, fear, and fury demand: find the truth, no matter what. People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn why, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America.
