It’s cold outside… time to get that book by your favourite author and curl up on the couch with a cup of something warm and a plate of goodies, and enjoy a quiet evening reading.

The Barriere Library has a wide selection of titles in stock for every reader.

Here are some of the newer titles:

Winter Stroll, by Elin Hilderbrand – The Quinns are looking forward to celebrating Genevieve’s baptism, welcoming Isabelle to the family, and enjoying the cheer of Nantucket’s traditional Christmas Stroll. But just when a peaceful family gathering seems within reach, Kelley’s estranged second wife, Mitzi, shows up on the island after souring on her relationship with the inn’s former Santa Claus. Soon Kelley isn’t the only Quinn entertaining a surprise guest from Christmases past as lovers old and new gather beneath the mistletoe. With jealousy, passion, and eggnog consumption at an all-time high, it’s going to take a whole lot more than a Christmas miracle to get the Quinns, and the inn, through the holidays intact.

Dashing Through The Snow, by Debbie Macomber – Ashley Davison, a graduate student in California, desperately wants to spend the holidays with her family in Seattle. Dashiell Sutherland, a former army intelligence officer, has a job interview in Seattle and must arrive by Dec. 23. Though frantic to book a last-minute flight out of San Francisco, both are out of luck: Every flight is full, and there’s only one rental car available. Ashley and Dash reluctantly decide to share the car, but neither anticipates the wild ride ahead.

Here are some of the newer titles for the younger reader:

Eye Of Odin, by Dennis Staginnus – While on a field trip to the Vancouver Museum, Grayle is forced to steal a Viking runestone from the museum’s newest exhibit. Should’ve been an easy job, especially for a master thief like Grayle. What he didn’t expect was another student, Sarah Finn, tagging along, or the Viking goddess of death showing up to steal the same artifact.

Mouse’s Christmas Cookie, by Patricia Thomas and illustrated by John Nez – When Cat sees Mouse take one of Santa’s Christmas cookies, the chase is on! “Stop Mouse!” Cat cries. Is Cat chasing Mouse because he wants the cookie, or is there some other reason? The chase ends happily, when Cat surprises Mouse with a gift—and Mouse reciprocates—showing that even unlikely friends can exchange gifts at Christmas.

Don’t forget that the Library has a good selection of movies to enjoy at home
