ILL Fees - Starting July 1 the library will be asking for $3 for each
Interlibrary Loan item.  This needed to be raised in order to help
the library with the rising costs of mailing the books back to the
lending library.

August 19 Chaperone by Laura Moriarty  is a captivating novel about the woman who chaperoned an irreverent Louise Brooks to New York City in 1922 and the summer that would change them both.
September 16 Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman is a historical novel set in 70 CE and tells about the lives of four complex and fiercely independent women. All are dovekeepers, and all are also keeping secrets — about who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and who they love.
