The garden he will create will allow for hours of learning, plus healthy vegetables and beautiful flowers for our community to enjoy.


Arden Reads!

Starting this month, Arden Conybear will be reading and reviewing our latest Teen books. Arden is currently a senior at Haldane High School.

She describes herself as an avid reader and, for the past two years, has competed on Butterfield Library’s Battle of the Books team. She says, "I’m super excited to have a platform this year to write about my thoughts on many of the YA novels available at the library."

Check out her thoughts on Middlegame by Seanan McGuire.

Middlegame by Seanan McGuire is a novel about an alchemist named James Reed that will stop at nothing to control time and reality. He creates a set of twins and harnesses them with the Doctrine of Ethos, which will give the twins (and thus Reed) the power to alter reality itself. After Reed separates them at birth, the twins grow up apart and unaware that their destiny is already written for them.

Pat Barker's
The Silence of the Girls

The retelling of Homer’s epic poem focuses on the cost of war to women through the story of Briseis, Achilles’ concubine.

Her story pulls back the veil on the thousands of women who lived behind the scenes of the Greek army camp—concubines, nurses, prostitutes, the women who lay out the dead—as gods and mortals spar, and as a legendary war hurtles toward its inevitable conclusion.

A Study in Charlotte

The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school near his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: it is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited Sherlock’s genius and volatile temperament. From the moment they meet, it is tense, but when a student dies and Jamie and Charlotte are framed for the murder, it's Charlotte who can clear their names.

Ta-Nehisi Coates'
The Water Dancer

"The Water Dancer is a jeroboam of a book, a crowd-pleasing exercise in breakneck and often occult storytelling that tonally resembles the work of Stephen King as much as it does the work of Toni Morrison, Colson Whitehead and the touchstone African-American science-fiction writer Octavia Butler."                                              - New York Times
