New Book Arrivals 06/21/2014

This week at the Rupert Public Library we had a very successful Summer Reading program. 
The following new books were added to our collection:
Natchez Burning by Greg Iles
The Painter by Peter Heller
The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank
All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner
Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
Bone Dust White by Karin Salvalaggio
Catching Air by Sarah Pekkanen
Young God by Katherine Faw Morris
We're very busy preparing for our reception Saturday, July 19th, for the Rupert High School all school reunion.  We'll have local authors doing book signings, and the Wood Turners Club will be showing their beautiful handcrafted items.  Of course the Friends of the Library will have "Cookies" to eat while you visit. 
On West Virginia Day, June 20th, we displayed our West Virginia State flag which was given to us by George Ambler, one of our House of Delegate members serving Greenbrier County.  We highlighted many of our West Virginia books, and many of our local artists.
