Well, I should never say “never”! Not too long ago, I stated that I would just never be very interested in Facebook. My friends have complained that I need to get into the 21st century, but I just prefer hearing about things in person or on the phone. However, to stay up with the times, I have created a Facebook page for the library, so check us out on Facebook and see what’s happening!NEW ARRIVALS: (All quotes are from publishers’ summaries)DVDs:GhostWe Are MarshallDirty DancingForrest GumpPatch AdamsThe CowboysMy Fellow AmericansCats & DogsAudiobooks:The Kingdom by Clive Cussler (CD F CUS)Breaking the Rules by Barbara Taylor Bradford (CD F BRA)Wicked Prey by John Sandford (CD F SAN)Off Season by Ann Rivers Siddons (CD F SID)True Colors by Kristin Hannah (CD F HANNon-fiction:The 2012 Old Farmer’s Almanac by Robert B Thomas (031 FAR)Fluent English (428.3) kit includes 3 CDs, 240 pg. book, flashcardsEnglish for Dummies (428.2 LAN SPAN) kit includes 3 CDs, bookFiction:Intent to Kill by James Grippando (F GRI)“A fallen baseball star must use his new skills as Boston’s king of sports radio to outwit a dangerous caller and prove—live and on the air—that the hit-and-run that killed his wife was no accident.”Playing the Game by Barbara Taylor Bradford (F BRA)“Annette Remmington, London art consultant and private dealer, has been groomed by her much older husband Marius to be the international art star that she has become.
