Next Book Club Meeting: To be determined...

Join us to discuss our latest book as well as help us determine what changes we can make to this book club to increase membership. Should we be reading different books? Meeting on a different day or at a different time? Perhaps this group should only meet during a certain part of the year? We welcome your input! And if you haven't read our current title...don't worry, we are an easy going bunch and we will still share our cookies!

 Currently Reading: The hundred year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared. by Jonas Jonasson.

The current title is available now at the branch.

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty.

The most recent title: The husband's secret by Liane Moriarty was a bit of a surprise for many readers. When you glance at the cover art you see a lovely dried pink rose that is mid- explosion...which frankly evokes thoughts of this story having a large romantic bent. It does have a bit of that, but it instead focuses on the mysterious circumstances of the death of a young woman many years before and the secrets people have been keeping from each other since that time. The storyline follows several families and slowly teases out the truth of what happened. The characters are well developed and will make you ponder what you might have done had you been in their shoes...all-in-all an enjoyable read!

  • We have a new computer system throughout all of our libraries. Most of the staff have had a chance to master the basics but appreciate your understanding if it takes us a few minutes longer to get things done!
  • We have a wonderful selection of great Feature Film movies in our branch. So if you are bored with re-runs or want to try something different stop by and see what we have to offer.
  • We have a Youth Services email list that parents may sign up for so that they can be kept informed about upcoming Children's programs and events. See staff to sign up!
