Library news for the week of July 21

If your upcoming long weekend involves a road trip, don’t forget to pick out a few audio books to make the miles fly by.

The library has a wide variety of them, from suspense to mystery, on CD and through the e-library. Be sure to check some out for your next commute or vacation travel.

And if you’re stuck at home in hot weather, come on into our spacious library where the ambience is cool and so are the books, DVDs, computer games, magazines…
