Kick off the summer!

Summer Reading Log
 Make sure to stop by JWL for your summer reading log. When you pick up the log you will also get a "I love to read" bracelet. The only restriction is you need to have a current library card in good standing.

The Summer Reading Log 2021 allows participants to track their reading over the summer. In addition on the back of the log, the summer activities are listed.


For those that complete their log and activities, they can enter to win a prize at the end of summer.

Don't let the summer slump affect your reading! We have added over 200 books into the children's room this last year. We are sure there will be something that your children will love to read.

BINGO!
And Parents! we also have bingo! Not just for the kiddos but for you too! We have three groups of bingo cards; littles, readers, and adults. For all the cards when you complete them you can get a prize plus enter to win a big prize at the end of summer.

Don't forget the activities on Thursdays as well. Our calendar is on the previous Summer Reading Post.

We can not wait to see you this summer!

The Bitterroots by C.J. Box  Former police officer Cassie Dewell is trying to start over with her own private investigation firm. Guilty about not seeing her son and exhausted by the nights on stakeout, Cassie is nonetheless managing, until an old friend calls in a favor. 

Win by Harlan Coben  Over twenty years ago, the heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors.

Someone Like You by Karen Kingsbury  When Maddie West discovers that she was adopted as an embryo and may have a sister, she feels betrayed, angry, and confused. Maddie moves away, leaving her job, fiancé, and family.

Coast to Coast Murders by James Patterson  There's a killer on the road, and nobody is safe. Michael and Megan Fitzgerald are siblings who share a terrifying past. Both adopted, and now grown - Michael is a long-haul truck driver, Megan a college student majoring in psychology - they trust each other before anyone else. They've had to.

The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner  Hidden in the depths of eighteenth-century London, a secret apothecary shop caters to an unusual kind of clientele.

But the apothecary's fate is jeopardized when her newest patron makes a fatal mistake.

The Rose Code by Kate Quinn  1940. As England prepares to fight the Nazis, three very different women answer the call to Bletchley Park, where the best minds in Britain train to break German military codes. Osla puts her fluent German to use.

Non-Fiction

Nothin' But a Good Time by Tom Beaujour  The definitive, no-holds-barred oral history of 1980s hard rock and hair metal. 1980s hard rock was a hedonistic and often intensely creative wellspring of escapism that perfectly encapsulated--and maybe even helped to define--a spectacularly over-the-top decade. 

Forgiving What You Can't Forget by Lysa TerKeurst  You deserve to stop suffering because of what other people have done to you. Have you ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind? You know you can't go on like this, but you don't know what to do next.

Biography

Broken (in the best possible way) by Jenny Lawson   As Jenny Lawson's hundreds of thousands of fans know, she suffers from depression. In Broken (in the best possible way), she explores her experimental treatment of transcranial magnetic stimulation with brutal honesty. But also with brutal humor.

The Beauty of Living Twice by Sharon Stone  The Nobel Peace Summit Award-winning actress, activist, and humanitarian chronicles her efforts to recover and rebuild after a massive stroke, discussing how her health challenges were also shaped by industry standards, childhood traumas, and family bonds.

The Last Days of John Lennon by James Patterson   John Lennon was one of the world's most influential people. Mark David Chapman was one of the most invisible. By the end of 1980, the Beatles had been broken up for a decade -- a decade John Lennon had spent in search of his true identity: singer, songwriter, activist, burn out. "It's the perfect time to be coming back," he declared. Except that Lennon was a marked man.

Young Adult

Lore by Alexandra Brackyn   Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god.

Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas  When children start to go missing in the local woods, eighteen-year-old Wendy Darling must face her fears and a past she cannot remember to rescue them in this novel based on Peter Pan. It's been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods.
