It’s a New Year and the North Sioux City Community Library has new books, audiobooks and movies to entertain, educate and enlighten patrons.

A book sale during the first week of December added new titles to our young reader collections. Illustrated fairy tales, classics, adventures and stories from Aesop were added in preparation for our 2020 Summer Reading Program. The theme this year is “Imagine your Story.” A new non-fiction dinosaur series will help readers learn more about the Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor. Board books – Steady Sloth, Scaredy Cat, Grumpy Tortoise and Cautious Chameleon – humorously introduce everyday emotions to toddlers.

A new series titled Witcher Sage by Andrzej Sapkowski will be of interest to our Fantasy/Science Fiction fans. A two-book series by Laurie Gelman titled Class Mom and You’ve Been Volunteered have found interest among our young mom readers. The Bad Guys graphic novel series by Aaron Blabey has been added to our collection. In 2018 it was announced that a movie adaptation of this book series is in development at DreamWorks Animation.

Popular authors James Patterson, Nora Roberts, Elizabeth Strout, Louise Penney and Danielle Steele are a few authors that have had recent releases. Be sure to check out books by these authors and more in the upcoming weeks.

Your library card does more than check material out at the library. You have online access to the entire North Sioux City Community Library collection through the Destiny Discover application. You can put items on hold and renew checked out materials as well. Your library card also gives you access to an online downloadable library. Through the Libby application, you can download ebooks, audiobooks and movies at no extra cost to you. If you would like more information or help with these applications, contact us.

We look forward to seeing you in the New Year. Until then, we hope you will be happy, healthy and warm!
