Library News

The Irving Library has now completed its second online book chat on Thursday, May 14th.  Since it is difficult for a group of us to obtain and read the same book title, book group participants agreed to choose a genre that we’ll read for next week.  Anyone who’d like to participate in the May 21st book chat should plan to drop in and share about a realistic fiction book that you have read. If you have trouble remembering what “realistic fiction” means, just think about a book where the action of the story could likely happen to you or someone you know.  Therefore, books with time travel, cyborgs, talking animals and dragons, or stories set in an historic or futuristic time period are probably not “realistic fiction.”   There are lots of good realistic fiction titles out there and we’d love to hear what you’ve read and enjoyed.  

Looking for something for your child to read or listen to? We have updated our selection with new titles! Click below for information on accessing free ebooks and audiobooks and for a listing of the Irving librarians’ office hours:
