Inspector Flytrap in the Da Vinci Cold! by Tom Angleberger & Cece Bell

A Venus flytrap and a goat are a mystery-solving duo in this hilarious first book in the “Inspector Flytrap” series. The plant detective works tirelessly with his assistant, Nina the Goat, on his community’s unsolved cases. Flytrap is interested only in solving "BIG DEAL" mysteries, while Nina seems motivated purely by her ravenous appetite. She has a bad habit of occasionally eating evidence! This book combines wacky humor and a silly cast of characters with adventure, friendship, and mystery.

The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Grades 2 - 3, please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In this wake-up call for general readers and undergraduate students, environmental journalist Joel K. Bourne argues that climate change could make it impossible to feed the growing global population in the next 40 years. The accessible narrative takes general readers around the world to meet individuals, families, activists, and agricultural innovators in small and large farms and research projects. The book’s engaging style, larger type, and black and white photos offer further appeal. Author Bourne has written for National Geographic, Audubon, Science, and Outside. He holds a BS in agronomy and a MS in journalism. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At the center of Mountains Beyond Mountains stands Paul Farmer. Doctor, Harvard Professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, the recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant, world-class Robin Hood, Farmer was brought up in a bus and on a boat, and in medical school found his life's calling: to diagnose and cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. This book shows how radical change can be fostered in situations that seem insurmountable, and it also shows how a meaningful life can be created, as Farmer - brilliant, charismatic, charming, both a leader in international health and a doctor who finds time to make house calls in Boston and the mountains of Haiti - blasts through convention to get results.

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).
