“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Here we are at last at the long, lazy days of summer. Nothing goes as well with all the daylight as a wonderful book to read.  Perhaps the quote above will make you want to re-read an old favorite, like The Great Gatsby. Or maybe you're looking for something new. The titles below are just some of the new books you'll find at the Library this summer. For a more complete account of our recent acquisitions, see our New Books List, published at the beginning of every month and available on the website or at the Reference Desk.
