Never Tell: A Novel (A D.D. Warren and Flora Dane Novel) by Lisa Gardner


#1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner returns with an unpredictable thriller that puts fan favorites D. D. Warren and Flora Dane on a shocking new case that begins with a vicious murder and gets darker from there.

A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun.

D. D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman–Evie Carter–from a case many years back. Evie’s father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.

Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim–a hostage–and her captor knew this man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down, Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad’s murder.

But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they wonder: How many secrets can one family have?

To Night Owl From Dogfish by Holly Goldberg Sloan & Meg Wolitzer


From two extraordinary authors comes a moving, exuberant, laugh-out-loud novel about friendship and family, told entirely in emails and letters.

Avery Bloom, who’s bookish, intense, and afraid of many things, particularly deep water, lives in New York City. Bett Devlin, who’s fearless, outgoing, and loves all animals as well as the ocean, lives in California. What they have in common is that they are both twelve years old, and are both being raised by single, gay dads.

When their dads fall in love, Bett and Avery are sent, against their will, to the same sleepaway camp. Their dads hope that they will find common ground and become friends–and possibly, one day, even sisters.

But things soon go off the rails for the girls (and for their dads too), and they find themselves on a summer adventure that neither of them could have predicted. Now that they can’t imagine life without each other, will the two girls (who sometimes call themselves Night Owl and Dogfish) figure out a way to be a family?

As these polar opposites hilariously collide, Tanya discovers that Danica’s picture-perfect life – including her online romance – may not be what it seems. With the aid of her eccentric mother (comedy legend Whoopi Goldberg), Tanya will do whatever it takes to help… even if it means completely blowing up her sister’s life! Omari Hardwick (Power) and Amber Riley (Glee) also star in this side-splittingly funny hit.

Artists, musicians and photographers take note: the library has a new way to connect with the latest apps for drawing, recording, editing, and more. An iPad with pencil is now available for use in the library, offering access to dozens of cutting-edge programs.

Feeling musical? No need to set up a drum kit or wheel in a grand piano. With GarageBand you can make music with your fingers (or your voice) by recording tracks, editing them, and uploading them to your favorite storage site. Don’t play any instruments? “Smart” programs play the chords and beats for you to mix and match.

Photoshop Express gives you powerful, professional-quality editing tools to enhance your photos. Use filters or add special effects, create artistic collages with a choice of backgrounds and layouts, add custom text or graphical watermarks. Photo Booth adds wild special effects like thermal mapping, x-ray, or kaleidoscope.

Visual artists can use Adobe Sketch, Adobe Draw and Procreate to sketch, paint, and color virtually any style of image, from fine line drawings to cartoons to abstract illustrations, using the iPencil, a sophisticated stylus that offers a range of line widths and effects. Galleries of other users’ work provides inspiration. Rough Animator brings those images to life.

With the iPad you can also log into your digital library accounts for books, movies, music and more. Choose from thousands of films on the streaming site Kanopy, explore new music and movies through hoopla, or enjoy books and magazines with the Libby and Flipster apps.
