Our #BookTuesday pick for May 23 is #TheRadiumGirls by #KateMoore.
Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, "The Radium Girls" fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the "wonder" substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations and research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives. Grab a copy today!

Thank you to #Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and @drichardsnyccouncil, who have secured a total of $7.6 million ($3.8 million each) to construct a new 3,000-square-foot resilient addition to #Arverne Community Library!

Congratulations to our Adult Learner Program Class of 2017! We're proud of all our graduates!

Our #BookTuesday pick is Salt Houses by Hala Alyan.

This debut novel tells the story of a Palestinian family being displaced and separated during the Six-Day War of 1967 between Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Syria — and later again during the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Scattered across the globe, the family struggles with war, assimilation, and new beginnings.

Reserve a copy of this celebrated book today!
