What I Like About Me by Jenna Guillaume

“You know all those movies where teenagers have, like, THE SUMMER OF THEIR LIVES? This summer is probably not going to be that. The last thing sixteen-year-old Maisie Martin thought she'd be doing this summer is entering a beauty pageant. Not when she's spent most of her life hiding her body from everyone. Not when her Dad is AWOL for Christmas and her gorgeous older sister has returned to rock Maisie's shaky confidence. And her best friend starts going out with the boy she's always loved.

But Maisie's got something to prove.

As she writes down all the ways this summer is going from bad to worse in her school-assignment journal, what starts as a homework torture-device might just end up being an account of how Maisie didn't let anything, or anyone, hold her back...”

Who could resist Library Director, Jesse’s, sincere and affable smile in this week’s #bookfacefriday

“King of the Mild Frontier: An Ill-Advised Autobiography” by Chris Crutcher

“A riveting, scorching—and hilarious—autobiography by the award-winning author of Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes and Deadline. From trying to impress a member of the girls’ softball team (with disastrous dental results) to enduring the humiliation of his high school athletic club initiation (olives and oysters play unforgettable roles), Chris Crutcher’s memoir of the tricky road to adulthood is candid, disarming, laugh-out-loud funny, relevant, and never less than riveting.”

Available for checkout at your Hurst Public Library!

New kids books available for check-out!

Jack at the Zoo by Mac Barnett & Greg Pizzoli
“An uproarious early reader series about a mischievous rabbit, a cranky old lady, and a lovable dog.”

Why Do We Cry? By Fran Pintadera
“By exploring the causes of our tears, Fran Pintadera's thoughtful, poetic picture book story defends the right to cry and reinforces crying's importance as a way to release our pain, to calm us and to help us grow.”

I’m a Big Brother by Joanna Cole
“The author/artist creators of How I Was Adopted present this child's-eye view of family life, deftly describing the joy of welcoming a new sibling into the family. A companion volume to I'm a Big Sister.”

Mermaid Tales: The Winter Princess by Debbie Dadey
“Pearl is over the moon when she gets the fin-tastic news that she’s been picked to be the next Winter Princess! But her parents have some news of their own…Pearl is going to be a big sister! They’re adopting a baby boy, and he’ll be coming home with them right around the time of the Winter Festival. Can Pearl convince her parents that a messy, noisy baby is the last thing they need? Or will she discover she’s more suited to being a big sister than she thought?”

Wrong Way Summer by Heidi Lang
“Claire used to love her dad’s fantastical stories, especially tales about her absent mom—who could be off with the circus or stolen by the troll king, depending on the day. But now that she’s 12, Claire thinks she’s old enough to know the truth.”

Horror High Resolved: You’re Dead by Nicholas Adams

“Lisa’s boyfriend Skip was proud to make the debate team, but he never survived the initiation. Lisa is convinced that someone on the brainy high school team has learned how to make an argument that can kill.”

Calling all poets and poets in the making! Our Black Out Poetry contest has arrived! Enter for your chance to win a book prize bag including “The Guest List” by Lucy Foley, “Hidden Valley Road” by Robert Kolker, and “When You Read This” by Mary Adkins in addition to some other fun goodies.

For this fun and simple contest all you need to do is:

Step 1: Find a page of text (newspaper, old book, scanned book page, etc).

Step 2: Read the page of text and using a pencil, circle words that resonate to you, but avoid circling more than 2 or 3 words in a row.

Step 3: Connect those words with filler words (“the”, “a,” “and,” “but,” etc.) to construct a coherent sentence(s). Make sure the words circled are all in order left to right, top to bottom so that they are read in order.

Step 4: Now the really fun part! Use a marker to black out the words not circled. Get creative and color them in fun patterns!

Step 5: Tag your entry with the hashtag #checkouthurst if your Instagram account is public, or dm us if your account is private.

The winner will be posted Aug 27th on our Instagram page so stay tuned! Prize will be made available at our curbside delivery.

Hi, here's a hopefully easy question I'd like help with, please Are we able to utilize some type of Interlibrary loan. For ebooks, from another facility, for books you don't have? If yes, I'd appreciate an explanation of the process for doing so. Thanks in advance.
For some reason the app will not work and when I try and use my library account through Cloud Library it is not working either. Any tips? Thanks :)
The Christmas NewYears hours should be posted on the cover page. Thank you
