The Library has just bought several books from this new collection.
The books are quick reads, covering a range of genres; many of the stories are written by James Patterson himself. These literally only take a few hours to read; ideal for a bus or train trip, and for encouraging reading among less confident readers.
Are you taking part in The Reading Ahead challenge? Pick up some of these books to read for that.

WORLD BOOK DAY 2017 – THURSDAY 2 MARCH!
World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 20th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 2nd March 2017 children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
Thanks to the generosity of National Book Tokens Ltd, publishers and booksellers, we have received £1 book vouchers that we can offer to children and young people who can then take their voucher to a local bookseller and can use it to pick one of TEN (exclusive, new and completely free) books. Or, if they’d rather, they can use it to get £1 off any book or audio book costing over £2.99 at a participating bookshop or book club (terms and conditions apply).

What is it?
It’s a reader app available for iPhone and Android phones.
What does it do?
It lets you see, at a glance your College Library loans; overdues, charges, reservations and items ready for collection. You can also renew your loans should you wish.
There is a link directing you to the Library catalogue, where you can search for resources, go directly to e-books or ClickView videos, and reserve items to pick up later.
How do I get it?
Go to where you normally get your apps and search for MyCirqa.
Once you have downloaded the app, it will ask for your Library – start typing North Warwickshire, and the full name will appear; tap Go and put in your username and password.
Your username is your College ID number; your password is your date of birth using six digits, e.g. 1st October 1999 becomes 011099.
You will see the screen shown above; tap the coloured squares to go to that function, or tap the three bars in the top right to log out or to go to the Library catalogue.
