After a one-year hiatus, the Scituate Art Festival is returning, and the library is excited to be there with you, October 9-11! Our Board of Trustees’ book sale will be back and better than ever! Except for the library itself, the book sale is the best way to get your hands on something to read without spending a lot of money – and it supports the library, too. This event wouldn’t be possible without the community’s great donations, our Board, and the time spent by our volunteer book sorters and everyone who signs up to carry the big heavy boxes.

Review by Luca I. Boring, tedious, and unoriginal are all adjectives that could reasonably describe Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe. The story takes place in Wicklow, Alabama, with a girl by the name of  Anna Kate arriving back in town for a funeral. Her grandmother has perished, and passed her café into the control of Anna Kate.
