Carolyn Phillips is heading up the Friends of the Library Book and Bake Sale that begins on Saturday March 31. Be sure to come—you just might go home with more books than you donated.NEW ARRIVALS: (All quotes are from publishers’ summaries)DVDs:In TimeThe Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1BuckTo Kill a MockingbirdThe Ides of MarchDriveThe WhistleblowerSesame Street: Learning Triple FeatureSpongeBob & Squarepants: Lost at SeaThe Dark CrystalMatildaThe Little Engine That Could Ella EnchantedOpen Season 2Surf’s UpFacing the Giants (Christian) Soul Surfer (Christian)Courageous (Christian) AUDIOBOOKS:Two Dollar Bill by Stuart Woods (CD F WOO)Sleepwalker by Karen Robards (CD F ROB)Wife for Hire by Janet Evanovich (CD EVA)FICTION:Victims by Jonathan Kellerman (F KEL Del.27)“Not since Jack the Ripper terrorized the London slums has there been such a gruesome crime scene.
