Still Curbside… But Not for Long?

While the Library remains curbside only at this time, we are extremely hopeful that we might be able to welcome patrons inside in the coming days. Please check our website, Facebook, and Instagram daily as we will be updating them as public health orders change.

New to Our Collection…

     The Coast-to-Coast Murders (James Patterson) tells the story of Michael and Megan Fitzgerald, siblings who share a terrifying past. Both adopted, and now grown they trust each other before anyone else. They’ve had to. Their parents brought up their adopted children in a rarefied, experimental environment. It sheltered them from the world’s harsh realities, but it also forced secrets upon them, secrets they keep at all costs. In Los Angeles, Detective Garrett Dobbs and FBI Agent Jessica Gimble have joined forces to work a murder that seems like a dead cinch. The Fitzgerald family comes to the investigators’ attention, but Dobbs and Gimble are at a loss–if one of the four is involved, which Fitzgerald might it be?
