Book discussion: August

The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin

The August book discussion title is The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin. 

At the turn of the 20th century in a rural stretch of the Pacific Northwest, a gentle solitary orchardist tends his crops until two pregnant girls and armed gunmen set him on an irrevocable course not only to save and protect but to reconcile the ghosts of his own troubled past.

The discussion begins at 7 pm on Monday, August 25 at the library. All are welcome to join the conversation - attend once or join in every month. The full schedule of discussion titles is available if you'd like to read ahead.

Free YA audiobook downloads

Sync YA literature downloads

Audiobook reading is still reading! And there's a great free summer program that provides access to teen books you'll want to read.

SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens. Between May 15 to August 13, SYNC gives away 2 audiobook downloads each week – a current young adult title along with a thematically paired classic/required reading title.

These downloads are delivered through the library's OverDrive downloadable system. Titles are only available for one week, but once they are downloaded they are yours to keep (they don't expire, like our checkout titles). Which means you have to check in each week to download the new books. 

Learn more and sign up for email or text alerts at www.audiobooksync.com. When new titles are made available, you'll be notified so you don't miss out!
