1000.Mile.Great.Lakes.Island.Adventure

From the time she was a girl climbing sand dunes and splashing in its cool waters, Loreen Niewenhuis has felt connected and drawn to Lake Michigan.  She decided to explore the lake fully by walking around it and then wrote a book about her journey called A 1,000 Mile Walk on the Beach.  Her next 1,000-mile hike was along the shores of all five Great Lakes which she discusses in her book A 1000-Mile Great Lakes Walk.  Her latest book is A 1,000 Mile Great Lakes Island Adventure, which covers her  time exploring the islands of the Great Lakes.

 Please join us as we host Loreen Niewenhuis. She will discuss her adventures and show us her spectacular photos and videos from the Great Lakes region.

This program will be held in the conference room next to the Civic Center Library. Registration is required for this event. Books will be available for sale and signing. Please call 586.574.4564 to register.

Eyes.On.YouThe Big Library Read program is back! From now through June 23rd, Warren Public Library card holders will be able to borrow and enjoy the eBook  Eyes on You by Kate White.

Eyes on You is a psychological thriller, and is perfect for those who like books by James Patterson and Janet Evanovich. It tells the story of Robin Trainor, who after a messy divorce has rebuilt her career. But then things begin to go wrong: she receives threatening notes, defaced pictures, and a doll that looks just like her—but with its eyes gouged out—left on her desk chair. Suddenly, she is in a race to find out who is doing this  and it becomes terrifyingly clear that the person responsible isn’t going to stop until Robin loses everything that matters to her . . . including her life. For a sample, click here.

If you’ve never tried downloading eBooks  from the library, now is a great time to start. They work on a variety of devices, including PCs, Macs, Kindles, Nooks, iPads, and even smartphones! The best part: there are no late fees!

You can download Eyes on You here from our eBooks site. For help with downloading eBooks, click here, or come into any branch. We hope you will take part in The Big Library Read!
