Fiction Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir: Riveting sci-fi about a lone astronaut who wakes up from a coma without any memory of who or where he is; and, little-by-little, begins remembering details of himself and his mission. As his memory begins to come back he has to overcome many obstacles in order to complete that mission. Just as in Weir’s first book, The Martian, he forges on using math and science skills to be successful, because failure is not an option. There’s action/adventure, deception, and a bit of a twist as well, in this horrifying sci-fi thriller. The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller: A story of summer, secrets, love and lies: in the course of a singular day on Cape Cod, one woman must make a life-changing decision that has been brewing for decades. The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict, is about the woman who helped JP Morgan create the Morgan Library in NYC. The Rose Code by Kate Quinn, is about female code breakers at Bletchley Park during WWII. Joining the elite Bletchley Park codebreaking team during World War II, three women from very different walks of life uncover a spy’s dangerous agenda years later against the backdrop of the royal wedding of Elizabeth and Philip. The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish: Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, The Weight of Ink is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history. Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks, a collection of short stories Non-Fiction On Animals by Susan Orlean: Examining animal-human relationships through captivating stories she has written over the course of her career, the author, in this book that is equal parts wonderful and profound, celebrates the cross-species connections that grace our collective existence. The happiest man on Earth : the beautiful life of an Auschwitz survivor by Eddie Jaku Movies 12 Mighty Orphans: The true story of the Mighty Mites, the football team of a Fort Worth orphanage who, during the Great Depression, went from playing without shoes, or even a football, to playing for the Texas state championships.

The Cranbury Public ‘pocket’ Library is finally open to the public for browsing our collection! With our new ADA accessible ramp, we can welcome ALL the community into our temporary space. However, I want to stress that we are offering only limited service at this time for several reasons. Even with vaccinations, COVID is still present and a threat to staff and public safety – especially indoors. Our temporary space is small and makes it difficult to effectively social distance. There is no area or furniture for community members to sit and read. There is only one table and chair reserved for notary service or limited Chromebook use. If you do come in to browse and choose books to read, we are happy to have you here. To keep everyone safe we ask that you call the library (609-722-6992) to make an appointment. This will help us limit the number of people in the space at one time. Those entering the building must wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Browsing is by appointment for 25-minute intervals starting on the hour and half hour. Children under 12 years of age are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If you have enjoyed using our curbside service these past few months you may continue to request items and pick them up outside as before. In some cases, this may be the best way to request books. As I mentioned above our space is small – so small it houses only half our collection. Older titles are stored offsite and will require extra time for staff to retrieve them. For that reason, if you know the title you are interested in borrowing, please request it prior to visiting the library. You can return items by using the bookdrop or placing them on the returns cart at the door. One computer will be available to search our catalog. Please bring your library card with you when you visit. You will need it to use our touchless checkout. Read our complete Phased Reopening Plan here. To take advantage of our handicapped entrance please park in the rear of the building in the handicapped parking area. The entrance is located between the houses at 7 and 11 Maplewood Avenue. Drive down the long driveway to access the handicapped parking and entrance ramp on the right side of the building. The door opens into the staff area of the library but the route to the front is clearly […]
