What's new

Due to the significant increase in positive cases of COVID-19 in Lewis County and the potential closure of area schools, the Brantingham-Greig Reading and Technology Center will be providing only curbside service beginning November 21st.  Our primary goal is to protect our patrons and support the request from county officials to help in efforts to reduce exposure.

 

Curbside service worked well prior to our brief in-person opening and we are confident that we will be able to meet patron needs.  To that end, Mary Dixon is working to establish links in the Google documents listing books to summaries in Good Reads. Directions will be available on the website at bhmgreads.org, along with a refresher on how to access curbside service.  Those directions are also listed below.

 

Please, if you know of anyone who does not have email or computer access, we are asking our community to pass on this information and to support each other in continuing to access materials from the center through curbside service.  Thank you for your understanding and support.

The Storm Beyond The Tides: Cullen, Jonathan: 9781079524871: Amazon.com:  Books

                                         The Storm Beyond The Tides is the story of the unlikely romance between a small-town girl and a German on the eve of the Second World War and explores a frightening time in America's past--when U-Boats prowled the East Coast and put small, coastal communities on the frontline of a global conflict.

 


A Time For Mercy by John Grisham

Bursting with all the courthouse scheming, small-town intrigue, and stunning plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy is John Grisham’s most powerful courtroom drama yet.


The Winemaker’s Wife by Kristin Harmel

"From the author of the "engrossing" (People) and "poignant" (Booklist) international bestseller The Room on Rue Amelie comes a remarkable and moving story of love, danger, and betrayal: two women in France in the darkest days of World War II and another in present-day America on a quest to uncover the secret that connects them. At the dawn of the Second World War, Ines is the young wife of Michel, owner of the House of Chauveau, a small champagne winery nestled among rolling vineyards near Reims, France. Marrying into a storied champagne empire was supposed to be a dream come true, but Ines feels increasingly isolated, purposely left out of the business by her husband; his chef de cave, Theo; and Theo's wife, Sarah. But these disappointments pale in comparison to the increasing danger ...

 


Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker - nonfiction

The heartrending story of a midcentury American family with twelve children, six of them diagnosed with schizophrenia, that became science's great hope in the quest to understand the disease.


Fifty Words For Rain by Asha Lemmie

Kyoto, Japan, 1948. “Do not question. Do not fight. Do not resist.”

Such is eight-year-old Noriko “Nori” Kamiza’s first lesson. She will not question why her mother abandoned her with only these final words. She will not fight her confinement to the attic of her grandparents’ imperial estate. And she will not resist the scalding chemical baths she receives daily to lighten her skin.
