Library Update

The past week at the library we have many new additions to the collection. We have new books and audio books for everyone to check out. Some of these books are donations and I would like to thank everyone who has donated. If you are looking for large print books we have added around seven books to the large print collection. The authors included James Patterson and Danielle Steel.

We also have a new section in the library. Next to the audio books we have the Advance Reading Copy section. These are books that the Book Loft donated to the library and they are now looking for a good home. So stop by and see if there is a book that you would like to adopt. They are yours to keep, and then pass them along.

As promised I have started a new blog entitled Staff Picks, ( This is where Jodi and I will be highlighting books and movies that we have in the collection. It is just a place where everyone can go to see what we have here. This is not limited to just mine and Jodi’s picks, it can be yours as well. If there is a book you have read or a movie you have seen, and you want to share it with the community; write a short paragraph about the book/movie and email to me at and I’ll add your review to the blog.
