Kid’s Reading Hour | WorldCat | Look For Me

Look For MeKid’s Reading Hour had an excellent turn-out this week!  With a total of eight children, we started reading Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang, which promises to be an enchanting, memorable story.  Thanks to all of you who attended! We hope to see you again soon!

Some of you know and make use of our online catalogue, finding what books and other materials we have available.  But did you know that you can also search hundreds of other libraries’ catalogues using the WorldCat?

WorldCat, or FirstSearch, is an online database that catalogues the contents of libraries world-wide.  Sometimes, when you’re looking for a lesser-known book or other resource, it can be difficult to obtain:  but WorldCat can make it easier to locate it in the myriad of libraries available to us.  

To access this resource, go to www.library.nd.gov/onlineresources.html , find the link to WorldCat, and get started on your search!

 

Our Featured Fiction of the Week is Look For Me, by Lisa Gardner.

A perfect autumn day in Boston is shattered when four family members are viciously gunned down in the comfort of their own home.  Their sixteen-year-old daughter, Roxanna Baez, is still missing. Witnesses say that she took the family’s two dogs for a walk shortly before the attack.  Is her absence a lucky coincidence? Or does it hint at something more sinister?

Detective D.D. Warren is on the case- along with survivor-turned-avenger Flora Dane.  As the case unfolds, they are faced with baffling evidence and difficult questions. But whether Roxanna Baez is the perfect daughter, or the perfect suspect, they know for certain that she is silently pleading,   look for me…

“Gardner has tackled a tough subject with some complicated protagonists… Fans will find the result as satisfying as ever.”  – Florida Times-Union
