Four times a year, Readers’ Services Librarians at Syosset Public Library hold a Title Swap. All of our patrons are invited to come in and talk about some of the noteworthy books that they have read recently. Our last Title Swap was held on May 11, 2010 and these are just 5 of the titles mentioned that day.
The Lost Quilter by Jennifer Chiaverini A tale of adventure, love, perseverance and quilting, involving a runaway slave.

Gallows Lane by Brian McGilloway Inspector Devlin waits on the borderlands separating north and south Ireland in order to capture James Kerr, a notorious ex-con returning home on early release.
The House at Riverton by Kate Morton This debut novel is narrated by Grace Bradley, now 98 years old and telling her story through flashbacks, remembers the last days of Edwardian aristocratic privilege before the first World War and the vibrant 1920s.
The Darkest Room by Johan Theorin Winner of Sweden’s best crime novel award. On an idyllic island off the coast of northern Sweden, a young couple from Stockholm tries to start life afresh.
