Fireside Thrillers

 

 Some of my best time for reading is when I can settle into my chair next to the fireplace and lose myself in a good story that can be termed a "thriller."  If you like to read "thrillers," please take a look at one of the library's newest displays, "Fireside Thrillers" and select some titles to check out and enjoy during the holiday period and at any time of the year.  Happy Reading!

Cozy Up With a Good Book

There’s still time to pick up a good book to enjoy over your winter vacation.  Our adult Seasonal Reading display is fully stocked with seasonal classics and new favorites, ready for you to grab and go on your merry way.  If you can’t make it in, check out our selection of eBooks and downloadable audiobooks, and there’s never a wait for classics like Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol which can be accessed through the “Always Available” section of OverDrive.
