The Northwood City Center Library will be hosting a read-aloud storytime for young children on Tuesdays at 10:30! Parents or guardians, bring your little ones here to enjoy a selection of 3 to 4 fun, easy-read story books.

The Saturday Kid’s Reading Hour will be starting again on the 26th of May, this time with Ian Fleming’s beloved classic, Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang. Kids ages 9-12 are invited to come and listen and visit as we read aloud this book, chapter-by-chapter each Saturday.
In Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang, an eccentric inventor and his family purchase a hopelessly dilapidated old car- but as they scrape away at the rust and mold, restoring it bit-by-bit, the car begins to exhibit some strange, mysterious, and perhaps even magical qualities. Though this family is definitely no ordinary family, they had no idea what a wild ride they were in for when they found…. Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang!
Our featured book of the week is Twisted Prey, the latest novel in John Sandford’s Prey series.
As a federal marshal, Lucas Davenport must confront his old nemesis, Taryn Grant, who has now found a seat on the US Senate Intelligence Committee. Her power and wealth has shielded her from the consequences of the three murders he’s certain she’s responsible for- but this time Lucas is determined to put an end to their unfinished business, one way or another.
Publishers Weekly has called it “Thoroughly entertaining… a deadly cat and mouse game that will keep the reader turning the pages up to the exciting climax.”
