After finishing the 'new materials' section of the Cherokee Public Library's April newsletter, I have decided it should be a good month for all of our patrons who look forward to new books and movies. Many of the items I am about to mention already have reserves on them (before they're even in the door), so be sure to call or stop in and ask for a 'hold' if anything is of interest to you. We'll be sure to have plenty of blank reserve forms available. Anyone with web access to their library account can also place a request through the Internet.
New books scheduled to appear sometime in April or into May include some very popular authors. James Patterson's 10th Anniversary continues his Women's Murder Club series. It is ordered in regular print, large print and on cd. The same holds true of '44 Charles Street,' Danielle Steel's latest offering. Michael Connelly has 'The Fifth Witness' coming out and David Baldacci's upcoming book is 'The Sixth Man.' Also on the horizon is Robert Parker's 'Sixkill.' Lots of numbers this month!
Both of the Clarks have new titles, with the one by Mary Higgins called 'I'll Walk Alone' and the one by Carol Higgins called 'Mobbed.' Others on the order list are 'The Silver Boat' by Luann Rice, 'Caleb's Crossing' by Geraldine Brooks, 'Time for Patriots' by Dale Brown, 'Once Upon a Time There Was You' by Elizabeth Berg, 'Live Wire' by Harlan Coben, 'Devious' by Lisa Jackson, 'Eve' by Iris Johansen, 'Crunch Time' by Diane Mott-Davidson, 'Chasing Fire' by Nora Roberts, 'Save Me' by Lisa Scottoline, 'The Final Storm' by Jeff Shaara, and 'Bel Air Dead' by Stuart Woods.
Highly anticipated nonfiction books are 'Heaven Is for Real' by Todd Burpo, 'Untied' by Meredith Baxter and 'In the Garden of Beasts' by Eric Larson. Whew! I think there should be something for everyone.
For movie fans,new selections will be 'Country Strong,' 'Little Fockers,' 'The Fighter,' 'The Next Three Days,' 'Yogi Bear' 'How Do You Know,' 'The Tourist,' 'Rabbit Hole' and one of the best movies I've ever seen, 'The King's Speech.'
Our younger crowd will have 'Tangled,' 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part I,' 'Barbie: A Fairy Secret,' 'Strawberry Shortcake: Putting on the Glitz,' 'Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl Galactic Battles' and the re-released version of 'Bambi' to choose from. Again, a reserve is a very good idea.
And to make April even better, the month also includes National Library Week, a visit from the Easter Bunny, and a road trip for the library director. Like I said, it should be a good month!
The library is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Tuesday and Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
