Plymouth people are avid readers and here are some ideas for your reading list: Carrie Stultz suggests Murder at the Mill by M B Shaw. Librarian Suzanne Sanderson suggests The Zig Zag Girl by Elly Griffiths, An Expert in Murder by Nicola Upson, Dangerous Crossing by Rachel Rhys, Dandy Gilver and the Proper Treatment of Blood Stains by Catriona McPherson and The Mangle Street Murders by M R C Karasian.
Charlie Torres is reading Arthur Ashe: A Life by Raymond Arsenault. Meloney Joyce liked My Bright Abyss by Christian Wiman. Two previously recommended books have more fans: Don Bell urges you to read The Library Book by Susan Orlean about the 1986 fire at the Los Angeles Central Public Library. Len Anderson recommends Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann (in Plymouth Library). Kathy Rood's top pick is National Book Award winner Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward, coming to Plymouth Library soon. Ingrid Holmlund recommends Good-bye to All That, Robert Graves' 1929 book centering on his experiences during WWI. What would you like to recommend? Let us know!
Visit the Little Free Library
Some people already discovered the new Plymouth Little Free Library. It’s a bookcase of free books located in the Lounge, near the recycling area. That’s fitting since we are recycling books. What ends up in our Little Free Library are books I have withdrawn from the library collection and donations the library can’t use. Books are withdrawn if they haven’t been checked out for 10 years, if the title is already in the library collection, books are outdated or if books have condition issues. They still can be wonderful; they just need to be discovered. Are you downsizing? Bring your books to the Library. If we can’t use them, they will be placed in the Little Free Library.
I created two Little Free Libraries in Anacortes. The Little Free Library organization says, “Take a Book, Leave a Book.” Sometimes people take a lot of books and don’t leave anything which can be a big problem. With the Plymouth Little Free Library, however, you are welcome to take as many books as you want. Come back frequently. There will always be something new. Oh, and help us keep the Little Free Library neat and tidy. —Suzanne Sanderson, Plymouth Librarian
