If you’re not aware of the Mason County Garden Club, you may not realize what “go-getters” they are! Sheri Clarkson (President) and a dozen or so members came last week and spent the afternoon cleaning up our front flowerbeds. The Garden Club has officially adopted the library as a public service project. We are so grateful that they did, and we are excited to think of how beautiful our landscaping will look when warmer weather arrives!NEW ARRIVALS: (All quotes are from publishers’ summaries)DVDsA Mile in His ShoesBlackthornI Don’t Know How She Does ItMargin CallMidnight in ParisMoneyballPunctureThe Chateau merouxThe Greening of Whitney BrownThe Hangover Part IIFICTION: Private #1 Suspect by James Patterson (F PAT Mor.3)“Private director Jack Morgan is accused of a horrible murder—and not even his own world-class investigators can prove he didn’t do it.”Down the Darkest Road by Tami Hoag (F HOA)“Four years after the unsolved disappearance of her sixteen-year-old daughter, Lauren Lawton is the only one still chasing the ghosts of her perfect Santa Barbara life.
