Osage Public Library

Happy New Year! It’s time to make a New Year’s resolution. How about “Read a book” – or better yet; how about “Read a new book”?

Stop into the library and ask about the new arrivals. Many are so new that no one has had a chance to read them. You can read one (or more) and be the first to tell us about it.

Perhaps you’re wishing to broaden your horizons by learning a new language. The library can help you with that.

We offer an online language learning website called Transparent Language. Use one of the library’s computers to set up a profile with user name and password by logging on to the Osage Library website at www.osage.net/~osagepl/ and looking for Transparent Language under Online Resources.

Chose from one of over 90 languages available, register for an account and you’re good to go.

After this initial setup, Transparent Language may be accessed on any computer connected to the Internet.

We have recently added several new books to the collection, including:

“After the War Is Over” by J. Robson…..after four years as a military nurse, Charlotte Brown is ready to leave behind the devastations of the Great War in this tale of class, love and freedom.

“You Will Pay” by L. Jackson…..it starts as a prank, a way to blow off steam after a long summer at Camp Horseshoe. Twenty years later, the deadly secrets of that long-ago summer stir to life once more.

“Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore” by M. Sullivan…..a heart-pounding mystery of a book store clerk, a disturbing suicide and long-buried memories from a violent childhood.

“Knife Creek” by P. Doiron…..in this edge-of-your-seat thriller, Mike Bowditch delves into a long-buried investigation to uncover a dangerous secret.

“Beach House For Rent” by M. A. Monroe…..Monroe returns to Isle of Palms to tell the charming story of two women, one summer and one very special beach house. Also on audiobook.

“Kiss Carlo” by A. Trigiani…..an epic novel of love, loyalty, and creativity; the story of an Italian American family on the cusp of change in 1950 Philadelphia. Also on audiobook.

“Here and Gone” by H. Beck…..a relentlessly suspenseful thriller about one woman’s fight against unimaginable evil to save everything that matters to her – her children.

“Same Beach Next Year” by D. Frank…..a bewitching story of marriage, love, family and friendship set amid the sultry sunshine, cool ocean breezes, icy cocktails and starry skies of South Carolina’s Lowcountry.

“Death of a Bachelorette” by L. Levine…..freelance writer Jaine Austen thought working for a knock-off reality show in the tropics would be paradise. But then the splashy gig becomes a deadly nightmare.
