Puzzle Swap is back!

Request a puzzle to pick up at McAuliffe through and then take it home! Choose how many pieces you'd prefer the puzzle to contain and bring home some fun. Just like with our in-person Puzzle Swap, you can choose to return it to the Branch when you are finished, or bring back a completely different puzzle (or any extra puzzles you wish to join the swap!).

Virtual Book Discussion: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin  

If you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life? It's 1969 in New York City and word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children—four adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness—sneak out to hear their fortunes. The prophecies inform their next five decades. Simon escapes to the West Coast, searching for love in '80s San Francisco; Klara becomes a Las Vegas magician, obsessed with blurring reality and fantasy; Daniel seeks security as an army doctor post-9/11; and Varya throws herself into longevity research, where she tests the boundary between science and immortality. 

Led by Jillian Holmberg.

Request a copy from the McAuliffe Branch Library by emailing, or borrow the eBook or Audiobook on Overdrive/Libby.
