This is a tentative list and schedule for the Friends of the Library Book Discussion. Friends of the Library have purchased 11 copies for checkout from the Library of "Death on Pleasant Street" by Giles Fowler. This is the first book for discussion on Tuesday, September 24 at 6pm. The author will be the Friends Annual Meeting speaker on Thursday, October 10. 5 of the 6 books had to be purchased from the publisher (instead of a book jobber) and will arrive after Labor Day, September 2. We will call past discussion participants and anyone else interested. You may reserve a set of the books now. If you have questions contact Library Director Glenda Hunt or Friends of the Library President Bess Mercer.
