LIBRARY UPDATE: If I Am Missing Or Dead by Janine Lotus, a true story of a sister who is murdered by her husband and how the author helped solve the crime.
Library Questions and Answers:
Q: Why should I sign out library books?
A: Circulation cards give the library staff feedback as to what is being read or left unread on the shelves. With up to 15-20 books put on the shelves by donations every month and those purchased with Round Table monies, we have to make sure that what is on our shelves is currently being read, as shelf space is limited. The cards also give an indication who has the book out in case someone else wants to read it. Patrons can see if they have read the book or not. How many times have you picked up a book and taken it home, only to find that you have already read it? Please sign your unit #, or your last name; not your first name to avoid duplication of trying to find a particular Sue or Mary Jane. Many thanks for your cooperation. ---Barb Tompkins 480-9294
