Library Lines: Tuesday,14 May 2019

There’s plenty happening in the library during May – this coming week the library is doing house bound book bag deliveries, bringing the library to people who can’t visit. If you know of any elderly or fragile people who would love to read or listen to books, this service is free of charge and simple to initiate – simply ring the library on 67402190 and ask the friendly library staff about it.

Lots of lovely new books have been added to the shelves this week – there’s plenty for everyone, and lots of different topics!

Amongst the new nonfiction are See Australia and die: tales of misadventure Down Under by Wendy Lewis. Short stories set in Australia’s deserts, oceans, beaches, and mountains demonstrating how relentless the country can be with the usually fatal outcomes – contains short descriptions of each incident with some information boxes.

On a lighter note is The cruise handbook: inspiring ideas and essential advice for the new generation of cruises and cruisers by Lonely Planet. The book is packed with practical information about cruising and cruises, including section of Booking, Eating and Solo Cruising, and chapters on Planning, Inspiration, and Choosing your cruise.

Readers can also try the autobiography My family and other animals by Gerald Durrell, set on the Greek island of Corfu. The book is shelved in the Large Print collection, but can be borrowed by anyone.

Fiction readers will be spoilt for choice. There’s The lily in the snow, third of a set by Australian author Jacki French, and Clive Cussler’s latest thriller Celtic empire, starring the intrepid Dirk Pitt. James Patterson and Brendan DuBois have collaborated to write Out of sight – ‘she knows too much, And it could cost her family everything.’ And featuring FBI consultant Amos Decker is David Baldacci’s Redemption, described as ‘A mile-a-minute read ‘
