Inferno by Dan Brown is our June book club choice!

book cover of Inferno by Dan Brown

Stop in and pick up a copy of Inferno, Dan Brown's 4th thriller with Robert Langdon. We will be discussing this book, on Monday night June 17, 2019 at 7:00. We have books, audiobook and large print copies available for immediate checkout.

Dan Brown is never boring and this adventure in Florence will keep you guessing until the last page.

Description from Goodreads.com

Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in an Italian hospital, disoriented and with no recollection of the past thirty-six hours, including the origin of the macabre object hidden in his belongings. With a relentless female assassin trailing them through Florence, he and his resourceful doctor, Sienna Brooks, are forced to flee. Embarking on a harrowing journey, they must unravel a series of codes, which are the work of a brilliant scientist whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential masterpieces ever written, Dante Alighieri's The Inferno.

You can still up sign for the Summer Reading Program!

Register here for the summer Reading Program at the Library. You can also register by stopping in. Once you've registered, come in and pick up your packet and reading slips.

For each hour of reading you complete, you will fill out a slip and then return the slips to the library. The more you read, the better your chances to win one of the grand prizes! You can also complete bingo cards to win small prizes throughout the summer.  

Start counting your reading time! All slips will need to be turned in by Friday, August 9th. We will be drawing for prizes after the run/walk on Susie the Duck Day.

Last April, members of the Lodi Valley Quilt Guild shared their quilt stories in a series of short videos filmed at the library. Some of these videos are now available on the Recollection Wisconsin website. As more get cataloged, they will be added to the website. Take a few minutes and enjoy hearing the stories as our local fabric artists tell you all about their quilts. Thanks to all of the quilters who filmed a video!
