Drive-In Double Features #3
As librarians, one of the best parts of the job is when we get to find out about all the amazing, interesting books that are always coming out. One of the most difficult parts is when we realize we can't buy them all! Below is a list of adult fiction that has been published in the last six months that we couldn't get for our shelves inside the library, but are available right now on Hoopla! All you need is your HMCPL card to get started on this pile of great reads.
Whether it’s your guilty pleasure or obvious obsession, your favorite show may be off air for a while.
Wait! There’s no Amazing Race, Bachelor Summer Games, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Million Dollar Listing New York, or Southern Charm! And the Kardashians are filming themselves with I-phones for next season! WHAT? Most reality shows' productions have been delayed or cancelled this year due to Covid-19.

If I Were You by Lynn Austin
The Last Flight by Julie Clark
Hieroglyphics by Jill McCorkle
I am here to lay some truth on you about how a tired parent reads to her child at the end of a long day. Sometimes when your day is 8 hours of work, meal prep x 3, drinking 64 ounces of water, and attempting those recommended 10,000 steps, you have nothing left in you except lots of water. The library has two library digital resources, Hoopla Digital and BookFlix, that will help you reclaim your time and supplement your bedtime ritual with an entertaining story.
2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, granting that no one could be denied the right to vote because of their sex. Could women vote before the 19th amendment? Yes, but not in every state. Could all women in America vote after the 19th amendment? No, immigrants, Puerto Ricans, and women of color could still be denied the right to vote. The movement to give all women the right began a lifetime before it was ratified in 1920 and continued to go on for decades still. This history and the stories of the men and women who fought to bring us this right are well documented in our collection.
