Library sidewalk getting redone

Photo of sidewalk construction at the libraryThe City is going to replace the sidewalks all around the library (starting today). It’s going to be a little loud in here at times and you won’t be able to park on the street outside the library. Not sure how long it’s going to take but it’s probably safe to assume at least a couple weeks. At times, one of our entrances will be closed – we will keep you posted as best we can. Sorry for the inconvenience!


Lorna BarrettCover image for Murder on the half shelf has struck gold once again.  Each installment in her Booktown Mystery series seems to earn her a spot on the New York Times bestseller list.  Book six in the series, Murder of the Half Shelf, debuted at #19 for mass market paperbacks, and we’re giving away a free copy this week. 

Set in Stoneham, New Hampshire, the series centers around Tricia, the owner of a mystery bookshop aptly named Haven’t Got a Clue.  These fun, frolicking mysteries are a delight to read.  Barrett is also renown for her Victoria Square mysteries written under the pen name L.L. Barlett.   With so many works under her pen, Lorna Barrett has mastered the formula for cozy mysteries.  Enter to win Murder on the Half Shelf, one of her best, this week at the library.
