Join us for a special storytime with co-authors Amy Dominy and Nate Evans as they share a new story about a little cookie with a big attitude.

Cookiesaurus Rex may not be your usual holiday treat, but he has plenty of Christmas spirit. He would like nothing more than to make it onto Santa's cookie plate. After all, the Big Guy should have only the best cookie to take back to the North Pole. But Mr. Spatula chooses Star, then Bell, and finally Gingerbread Boy. . . . WAIT ONE STINKIN,' STOMPIN' MINUTE! Looks like Cookiesaurus Rex is going to have to take matters into his own tiny arms. Will his Christmas dreams come true, or will his holiday dreams be crumbled? More »

Friends of the Library
 
The New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author presents the seventh installment of her Keeper of Lost Cities middle grade series.

In this unforgettable seventh book in the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series, Sophie must let the past and present blur together, because the deadliest secrets are always the ones that get erased.

Sophie Foster doesn't know what--or whom--to believe. And in a game with this many players, the worst mistake can be focusing on the wrong threat.

But when the Neverseen prove that Sophie's far more vulnerable than she ever imagined, she realizes it's time to change the rules. Her powerful abilities can only protect her so far. To face down ruthless enemies, she must learn to fight.

Unfortunately, battle training can't help a beloved friend who's facing a whole different danger--where the only solution involves one of the biggest risks Sophie and her friends have ever taken. And the distraction might be exactly what the villains have been waiting for.

All You Can Ever Know: A Memoir

by Nicole Chung | Hardcover, $26.00 »

All You Can Ever Know: A Memoir When writing a recommendation, it's encouraged that we talk about ourselves. Mentioning how a book made us feel and how it impacted us is oftentimes more useful than a summary. But I'm reluctant to do it here. All You Can Ever Know draws its strength from Chung's clear, honest narrative - and I'd be remiss if I did anything to dilute that. Furthermore, Chung's past, the way it unfolds with such care, is much more interesting than anything I could say. Just know two things: Throughout the book, Chung questions ideas behind family and adoption that I would have been scared of investigating, and I finished the book feeling like I could trust her. The book felt like a well-kept promise - something rare and personal.  —Connor
