Library adds new books
By SUE WATSON
The Marshall County Library in Holly Springs has expanded its young adult books section by about 200 new books.
Librarian Amanda McDonald said the new young adult book section was created by pulling out books from other book sections. Most of the books are fiction but there is some new non-fiction, she said.
Some new non-fiction books in a series are the “Understanding World History” series and “The Civil Rights Movement” series. Other works include “Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins that should be coming out as a movie next year, she said.
“It’s one of my favorite sections,” McDonald said. “I’ve just started reading young adult in the last year. They are some good books.”
The new books were purchased with Library Services and Technology Grant money, the fund that provided new laptops for the library last year.
McDonald said she thinks the books that were selected are popular with readers.
“I saw what they had on the shelves at Barnes & Noble recently and they had lots of the same books we have ordered,” she said.
