  • #ReviewsDayTuesday The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things by Ann Aguirre
    Sage Czinski is trying really hard to be perfect. If she manages it, people won’t peer beyond the surface, or ask hard questions about her past. She’s learned to substitute causes for relationships, and it’s working just fine . . . until Shane Cavendish strolls into her math class. He’s a little antisocial, a lot beautiful, and everything she never knew she always wanted.  Shane Cavendish just wants to be left alone to play guitar and work on his music. He’s got heartbreak and loneliness in his rearview mirror, and this new school represents his last chance. He doesn’t expect to be happy; he only wants to graduate and move on. He never counted on a girl like Sage. Checkout (or hold) a copy with the library staff!
  • The Muskie Bands are teaming up with Hy-Vee Food Store, 2400 Second Avenue, for the easiest fundraiser ever! For every purchase made at the Muscatine Hy-Vee Food Store Monday, December 12 through Wednesday, December 14 that is accompanied with the attached slip, Hy-Vee will donate 7% of your total sale to the Muskie Bands! This is a great time to stock up on groceries for holiday cooking and baking needs. If you don’t have time to shop, please consider purchasing a Hy-Vee gift card to use later. Purchases include:
    • Hy-Vee gift cards (or any gift cards)
    • Starbucks
    • Purchases at the Hy-Vee gas station
    • Pharmacy purchases
    • Deli/Restaurant purchases
    • Items purchased at the service counter (postage stamps for your holiday cards and dry cleaning)
    • And of course – groceries!

Please help us spread the word by sharing the attached slip on your social media sites, with neighbors, friends, relatives, co-workers, etc. The more people that present the attached slips (attachment below) during the designated three days, the more money raised to support Muskie Bands!
