Dear Pen Pal by Heather Vogel Frederick

This is another book in the mother-daughter book club series, (I still dislike that name.) Now that the girls are in 8th grade, they have even more fights with friends and boys. Great read!

This is the 10th book in the the Wings of Fire Series! I can't wait for the next one, it's a great fantasy story with well-developed plots and CHARACTERS!

Little Free Libraries - The Other Libraries in Cambridge

Hey us, readers!

Did you know that in addition to the CPL and our branches there are at least twelve more places in Cambridge where you can get free books?  Maybe your local library has closed for the day, or you just really want something to read that you don't have to bring back before summer's over.  Our city's Little Free Libraries have got you covered!

Here's the deal: 

Little Free Libraries are all over Cambridge (and all over the world!) and they are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! You can find one near you by entering your zip code or city on this map.  Take any book you want from a Little Free Library, and if you love it, you can keep it forever.  If not, pass it on to a friend, return it to the same Little Free Library, or donate it to a different one.  You can also drop off any books from home that you don't want any more - Little Free Libraries love donations!

Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Empire by John Ostrander, Randy Stradley, Haden Blackman, and Alexander Freed

Darth Vader has risen, and has a passion for hunting down the jedi. Some die in a fight. Others submit themselves to death willingly. Some do both. Some survive, going undercover.
People change their names to survive. Statues are blasted. Finally, Vader goes on a mission where he realizes he still has some light left in him.
The one thing the emperor does not know.

Dark Empire 2 by Tom Veitch and John Whitman

The emperor has fallen - or has he?
Imperial executor Sedriss now commands the fearsome Galaxy Gun, a new weapon that threatens to end the rebel alliance once and for all. Luke races to find the last surviving Jedi in the galaxy, encountering Jedi trees, steam powered ships, and Boba Fett who survived the Sarlacc pit.
It's a wild ride as the emperor finally realizes that his end is coming.
