Express Yourself; Visit JCPL for Some New Adult Fiction!

March is halfway over; it’s now the seventeenth. Around the bend comes April, with all events so neat.

For April is for poets, who express themselves with rhyme; they write about great loves and such, and feelings so sublime. The opening of April is really fun for fools; for the first day of this springtime month lets us break a million rules.

Revive With These Brand New Adult Fiction Titles; The Great Escape!
