August 19th, 2015 by IPL Webmaster in Adults, Kids, Teens · No Comments ·

It’s time! The New Irondequoit Public Library will open on Wednesday, September 9.

The newly constructed building will include dedicated teen and children’s sections, study areas, free wi-fi, multiple meeting spaces for community groups, and fully equipped craft rooms that can be used to explore and expand our abilities.

In order to move all the books, materials, and furnishings from the two existing branches, the current Irondequoit Library branches closed in August. The Pauline Evans Branch on Cooper Rd. closed on Friday, August 7. The Helen McGraw Branch on Ridge Rd. closed a week later on Friday, August 14. All due dates on items checked out in the weeks before the temporary closing were extended to Saturday, September 12.

Books and other materials that are scheduled to be picked up after August 17 will be available for pick-up at the Irondequoit Town Hall. Patrons who have placed books and other materials on hold will be contacted with details.

More information about the big move will be available soon, and you can read the official press release at the Town of Irondequoit’s website.

New Young Adult Books for July 2015

July 6th, 2015 by Melanie in New on the Shelves, Teens · Comments Off on New Young Adult Books for July 2015 ·

pofProof of Forever by Lexa HillyerBefore: It was the perfect summer of first kisses, skinny-dipping, and bonfires by the lake. Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe knew their final summer at Camp Okahatchee would come to an end, but they swore they’d stay friends.
After: Now, two years later, their bond has faded along with those memories.
Then: That is, until the fateful flash of a photo booth camera transports the four of them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed.
Now: The girls must recreate the past in order to return to the present. As they live through their second-chance summer, the mystery behind their lost friendship unravels, and a dark secret threatens to tear the girls apart all over again.
Always: Summers end. But this one will change them forever.

ewyltmEven When You Lie to Me by Jessica AlcottCharlie, a senior, isn’t looking forward to her last year of high school. Another year of living in the shadow of her best friend, Lila. Another year of hiding behind the covers of her favorite novels. Another year of navigating her tense relationship with her perfectionist mom.
But everything changes when she meets her new English teacher. Mr. Drummond is smart. Irreverent. Funny. Hot. Everyone loves him. And Charlie thinks he’s the only one who gets her.
She also thinks she might not be the only one with a crush.

tslombThe Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie OakesThe Kevinian cult has taken everything from seventeen-year-old Minnow: twelve years of her life, her family, her ability to trust.
And when she rebelled, they took away her hands, too.
Now their Prophet has been murdered and their camp set aflame, and it’s clear that Minnow knows something—but she’s not talking. As she languishes in juvenile detention, she struggles to un-learn everything she has been taught to believe, adjusting to a life behind bars and recounting the events that led up to her incarceration. But when an FBI detective approaches her about making a deal, Minnow sees she can have the freedom she always dreamed of—if she’s willing to part with the terrible secrets of her past. (more…)
