Cardinal Catalog.jpg

We are excited to announce we plan on starting a new virtual youth book club led by one of our teen employees. This will be for junior high school students.

We have added many new Young Adult books and Fantasy books this year. This includes 149 YA books and 40 Fantasy books. We have some of the latest hot ticket books.

Some of these books are available on our e-books services free with your library card.

Listed below are some of our new books:

“Darius the Great Deserves Better.” Adib Khorram. A sequel to Darius the Great Is Not Okay finds Darius enjoying a comparatively peaceful return from his trip to Iran before a long visit from his grandmothers, a disappointing internship and conflicted feelings about a soccer teammate complicate his relationships. 

“Verona Comics.” Jennifer Dugan. Meeting at a comic convention prom, the cellist daughter of an indie comic shop owner and the disgraced son of comic superstore titans navigate a secret romance that is complicated by anxiety, their feuding parents and an approaching audition. 

“Six Angry Girls.” Adrienne Kisner. When her promising senior year is upended by setbacks, including expulsion from the Mock Trial team that voted girls out after she spent three years leading it to success, Raina finds a new sense of purpose at a craft store, where she becomes inspired to create a rival all-girls team.

“Shatter Me.” Tahereh Mafi. Ostracized or incarcerated her whole life in this dystopian thriller, Juliette is freed on the condition that she use her abilities in support of the dictatorship, but Adam, the only person ever to show her affection, offers hope of a better future. The library has purchased all four books in this series.

“A Love Story.” Jenny Lee. A modern reimagining of Anna Karenina is set in the elite enclaves of Manhattan and Greenwich society and finds a reluctant socialite navigating teen life before falling for a notorious playboy who harbors a shattering secret. TV tie-in.

“Running.” Natalia Sylvester. Seeing her father with new eyes when he launches a presidential campaign, a sheltered Cuban-American teen is exposed to unwanted media attention, scandals and devastating truths before finding the courage to speak out. 

“The Song of Achilles.” Madeline Miller. Achilles, son of the cruel sea goddess Thetis and the legendary king, Peieus, is strong, swift and beautiful—irresistible to all who meet him. Patrocius is an awkward young prince exiled from his homeland.

They are trained by the centaur Chiron in the arts of war and medicine, but when Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped, all of the heroes of Greece are called upon to lay siege to Troy.
