Librarians offer their summer reading picks!


Don’t know what to read this summer? We’ve got you covered!

Center Moriches Free Public Library librarians offered these summer picks:

Mary McNulty, Reference Librarian

“A Desolation Called Peace”

“I’m loving ‘A Desolation Called Peace’ because it is a fascinating exploration of imperialism, language, and clashing cultures in a sci-fi world so well developed it feels real. Intricate world building, realistic politics, and great character building all combine to provide a unique read. It’s a sequel, though—make sure to read ‘A Memory Called Empire’ first.»

Dominique Nason, Children’s Librarian

“Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow”

“I like to switch up reading middle-grade books and adult books to keep up with our collection and recommendations.  One I am enjoying is ‘Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow.’  It›s ‘Harry Potter’ meets the ‘Hunger Games’ when a cursed girl escapes death and finds herself in a magical world.  First in a series, this book was super fun to read! One of my favorite characters is Jupiter North, Morrigan’s guardian.  He is funny, optimistic, energetic; and has a history of ‘Outrageous rule-breaking.’

Cecilia Buchanan, Children’s Librarian

“Starfish” by Lisa Fipps

“I love this book because it talks about learning to love and accept yourself, finding friends who love and accept you for who you are, and learning how to celebrate our differences.”

Margie DeCaro, Head of Children’s Services

“One for the Murphy’s”

“I’m currently reading ‘One for the Murphy’s’ by Lynda Mulally Hunt. It is a beautiful, bittersweet middle-grade story about betrayal and accepting love from unexpected sources. Highly recommend!”

Lisa Ferguson, Children’s Clerk

“Artisan Sourdough Made Simple”

“I have decided to try my hand at making sourdough bread. Why not. This book, ‘Artisan Sourdough Made Simple’ by Emilie Raffa, has simple, easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. Hoping to have some yummy homemade bread soon.”
