Close to forty residents and Library Committee members mingled in the Library on a recent September afternoon. Showcasing an enticing selection of forty brand-new books and sharing passions for reading was the impetus for the gathering.
Our signout sheets tell us that Library users’ favorite books are fiction, mystery/spy/adventure, biography, and history. Our new books reflect those interests. We’re also happy to offer new titles from favorite Minnesota authors and timely books on politics and government.
This year, while the Committee was developing its summer book order, it received a significant gift of Milkweed Editions books from 1666 resident Veena Deo. In addition to her position on the Hamline faculty, Veena serves on the Milkweed Editions board. Portland, Oregon’s esteemed “Powell’s Books” views Milkweed as one of the twenty-five most important small presses in the U.S.
We were pleased to include the Milkweed Editions books at the open house. Hope you picked up our list of all of the new books. The list contains the books we ordered as well as each of the Milkweed Edition titles donated by Veena.
Find extra copies of the 2019 list in the Library. Throughout October, unless already signed out by other residents, you’ll find those books on the Recent Arrivals shelves.
