Heart of America Library News

By Vicki Hoffart - Heart of America Library Director | Sep 12, 2020

September is Library Card Sign-up Month. If you don’t have a card, stop by or give us a call. The Heart of America Library has public computers, magazines and newspapers, audio books, DVDs, and, of course, books. Checking our records today, we have 32,728 items cataloged in our library. That could mean that we have something for almost everyone, and it is free to any resident of Pierce County. Out of county persons can get a library card for only $5 per year. A card from any public library also allows you access to many online resources available through the ND State Library.

New to the shelves this week were several adult biographies, including “Pale Faced Lie” by David Crow, “Burnt Bread & Churny: memoir of an Indian Jewish girl” by Carmit Delman, “The Truths We Hold: an American journey” by Kamala Harris, “In order to Live: a North Korean girl’s journey to freedom” by Yeomni Park; and “Too Much and Never Enough: how my family created the world’s most dangerous man” by Mary L. Trump.

We also added some junior biographies with titles “Exquisite: the poetry and life of Gwendolyn Brooks” by Suzanne Slade, “Superheroes Are Everywhere” by Kamila Harris, and “Always, Jackie” by Ronnie Rabinovitz.

A new junior non-fiction title is “Outsmarting Worry: an older kid’s guide to managing anxiety” by Dawn Huebner.

We added several titles to the junior easy shelves: “Author Gator” by Josh Benya, “Extraordinary Ordinary Ella” by Amber Hendricks, “I am Polar Bear” by J. Patrick Lewis,; “The Might Steam Engine” by Yvonne Ng, “The Smallest Girl in the Smallest Grade” by Justin Roberts, “OH Deer!” by Brandi Smeltzer, “Surprise Circus” by Aria Soloway, “If I Built a School” by Chris Van Dusen and “The Weather’s Bet” by Ed Young.

For those of you that enjoy a mystery series, Canadian author Louise Penny’s “Chief Inspector Gamache” series has been popular with many readers. The series is set around the life of Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of Surete du Quebec, the provincial police force for Quebec. We have fourteen of the books in the series.
