Munising School Public Library Notes

Just a reminder, because it is that time of year, if school is closed for a weather event, then the public library is closed as well. The annual Library Used Book “Sale” will take place Dec. 21 – Dec. 30 in the library meeting room. A vast variety of used books will be available. Remember, used books make great gifts and there is sure to be something for everyone!

New Book: The Memoirs of Stockholm Sven by Nathaniel Ian Miller. In this “briskly entertaining” (New York Times Book Review), “transporting and wholly original” (People Magazine) novel, one man banishes himself to a solitary life in the Arctic Circle, and is saved by good friends, a loyal dog, and a surprise visit that changes everything. Written with wry humor and in prose as breathtaking as the stark landscape it evokes, The Memoirs of Stockholm Sven is a testament to the strength of our human bonds, reminding us that even in the most inhospitable conditions on the planet, we are not beyond the reach of love.
