Our Regional Libraries are now open for Express Visits! Know before you go.
And we still offer contactless pickup and return with Books on the Go!

The East Regional Library will remain closed today (1/25) due to two positive COVID cases among library staff. We will use this time for cleaning and ensuring the rest of the staff is well. We will provide updates on reopening when more information is available.

Some notices were not sent. Check your account for due dates (but we are still fine free)!

display_descriptionTurtle Alveston "has grown up isolated since the death of her mother, in the thrall of her tortured and charismatic father, Martin. Her social existence is confined to the middle school (where she fends off the interest of anyone, student or teacher, who might penetrate her shell) and to her life with her father. Then Turtle meets Jacob, a high school boy who tells jokes, lives in a big clean house, and looks at Turtle as if she is the sunrise. And for the first time, the larger world begins to come into focus: her life with Martin is neither safe nor sustainable"--
