Have you had a change to try out the new catalog? If you would like helping learning how to use it, just stop by and we can give you a quick tour. It is really pretty easy once you get the hang of it—and so fast compared to the old one.
You will note that when you go to “my account” you need a login and password. The login is your library card number—don’t enter the “P”—the password is the last four digits of your home phone number. Of course if we don’t have your phone number, it was a cell (and we wrote cell after it) or it was entered incorrectly you may have to come in. We can change it for you.
When you come in be sure we have your correct e-mail. The system sends out notices to e-mails that your holds are ready for pick up, reminds you that your books will be due in three days, and sends out overdue notices. It will make us much more efficient!
When you come in check out our new books, maybe you would enjoy one of these.

Ali Reynolds begins the summer thinking her most difficult challenge will be surviving a six-week- long course as the lone forty-something female at the Arizona Police Academy—not to mention taking over the 6:00 AM shift at her family’s restaurant while her parents enjoy a long overdue Caribbean cruise. However, when Brenda Riley, a colleague from Ali’s old news broadcasting days in California, shows up in town with an alcohol problem and an unlikely story about a missing fiancé, Ali reluctantly agrees to help.

Abandoned by her father and neglected by her self-absorbed mother, Sheila McGee longs to escape from her small Irish village, where her destiny seems already to be written: forever consigned to working at the mill, forced to hand over her paycheck to her mother. When she gets the opportunity to compete for the title of 1941 Linen Queen, she finally sees a way out, for the prize money will fund her dream of escaping to England. But WWII intervenes, bringing with it travel restrictions and a base set up for American soldiers. She intends to snag American officer Joel Solomon, much to the distress of her childhood friend, Gavin. Joel turns out to be a Jewish soldier of conscience and schools her in the deeper meaning of the fight against Hitler.
