Bad Dog Bubba by [Tas Cru, Heather Brown]          

THE LATEST BOOK IN LOCAL RESIDENT TAS CRU'S BLUES DOGS SERIES

In this second book of the blues dogs trilogy Bad Dog Bubba is on a mission to form his all dog blues band.  Bubba enlists help from his blues-loving buddy Scooter and Bclef, the bass playing gal  from his owner's blues band.  Bclef's experience and more important, her ability to talk dog will prove vital to making Bubba's dream a reality as will Scooter's upbeat energy and unleashed enthusiasm!  Bubba has proven himself to be a skilled songwriter but does he have what it takes to make and lead a band?

This book introduces a pack of new dog characters - all would-be blues dog recruits who need some convincing.  Bubba's sweetheart, Sylvia returns to play an important role as the story unfolds.   

Book three will showcase the band as it develops its repertoire of songs that Bubba writes about each of them.  These songs can be heard on the music album Doggone Blues, which is now available for purchase.

From the internationally bestselling author of What She Left Behind comes a gripping and powerful tale of upheaval—a heartbreaking saga of resilience and hope perfect for fans of Beatriz Williams and Kristin Hannah—set in Philadelphia during the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak—the deadly pandemic that went on to infect one-third of the world’s population…

Did you know your local library has thousands of ebooks and audiobooks?

You can borrow them, instantly, for free, using just the device in your hand.

Mobile App

  North Country Library System patrons will now be able to access the entire catalog right from their smartphones. The App allows patrons to search for and reserve books across the system and manage their account. It can  act as a digital library card, as it is able to be scanned to check out books. The app has information on all 65 branches in the system, including hours and locations. The calendar feature, which sorts events by county, allows patrons to explore neighboring libraries. Our favorite feature is the ISBN scanner. If you see a book in a store you think you might like to read, scan the barcode on the book and it will tell you if it’s in our catalog. The North Country Library System app is available to download for free on Apple and Android devices.

Inked Mason Jars 

We'll be using different techniques with alcohol ink to make these lighted mason jar lanterns! You'll probably have time to make 2-3 depending on your ability to walk away. lol They have solar/battery operated fairy lights in them that allow you to hang them anywhere!
