The Barriere Library is a great place to pick up a movie for the weekend, or to get a book on how to do that job you’ve been putting off all winter. And if they don’t have the title you’re looking for, ask them to do an interlibrary search for you – if it is in a library anywhere in North America, they can get it for you (though it may take a few weeks to arrive). Their list of titles is constantly growing, with new books always being added.
There are lots of new titles in for your reading pleasure at the Barriere Library, including:
Confessions of a Wild Child by Jackie Collins – Lucky Santangelo, a fifteen-year-old wild child ready to discover life, love and independence. Daughter of the notorious Gino, Lucky discovers her mother’s murdered body floating in the family swimming pool at the tender age of four. Since then Gino has kept her protected from life closeted in their Bel Air mansion. But when Lucky finally breaks free, and running away from boarding school the adventures begin.
After I’m Gone by Laura Lippman – When Felix Brewer meets Bernadette “Bambi” Gottschalk at a Valentine’s Dance in 1959, he charms her with wild promises, some of which he actually keeps. Thanks to his lucrative—if not all legal—businesses, she and their three little girls live in luxury. But on the Fourth of July, 1976, Bambi’s comfortable world implodes when Felix, newly convicted and facing prison, mysteriously vanishes. Though Bambi has no idea where her husband—or his money—might be, she suspects one woman does: his mistress, Julie. When Julie disappears ten years to the day that Felix went on the lam, everyone assumes she’s left to join her old lover—until her remains are eventually found. Now, 26 years after Julie went missing, Roberto “Sandy” Sanchez, a retired Baltimore detective working cold cases for some extra cash, is investigating her murder. What he discovers is a tangled web stretching over three decades that connects five intriguing women. And at the center is the missing man Felix Brewer.
There are also new books in for young adults, including this one:
