Heart of America Library News

By Vicki Hoffart - Heart of America Library Director | Nov 7, 2020

The Heart of America Library continues to be open to the public. We ask that people use the hand sanitizer and/or wash their hands upon entering and maintain social distance.

Plans now call for Story Hour to be held on Friday, November 13 and November 20 at 10:15 a.m. Gail Rham and Karen Black continue to organize these and do a great job. If plans change, we will let everyone know and make a post on Facebook.

Last week’s Tribune article about Rugby native Larry Watson was very interesting. We have his book “Let Him Go”, as well as “Montana 1948”, “As Good as Gone” and “American Boy” on our shelves. If you are interested, stop by.

Of interest to many of our readers have been the four books we have about Georgia Tann, the American child trafficker who operated the Tennessee Children’s Home Society in Memphis, Tennessee. Two fiction books are “Before We Were Yours” by Lisa Wingate and “Lost Girls of Devon” by Barbara O’Neal. Two non-fiction books on our shelves are “The Baby Thief” by Barbara Bisantz Raymond and “Before and After” by Judy Pace Christie.

We added several non-fiction books this week. They are “The New Science of Fighting Silent Heart Disease: causes, diagnoses, prevention, and treatments” by Harold L. Karpman; “Crohn’s & Colitis: understanding & managing IBD” by Allan Hillary Steinhart; “Surviving and Thriving with an Invisible Chronic Illness: how to stay sane and live one step ahead of your symptoms” by Llana Jacqueline; “Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias: a guide for people with dementia and those who care for them” by Jonathan Graff-Radford, M.D.; “Visual Guide to Creative Straight-Line Quilting: 60+ modern designs – professional-quality results on any machine” by Natalia Whiting Bonner; “The First Conspiracy: the secret plot to kill George Washington” by Brad Meltzer; “Theodore Roosevelt, Naturalist in the Arena” by Char Miller, Editor; and “The Pioneers: the heroic story of the settlers who brought the American ideal West” by David G. McCullough.
