    June is a military genius, having aced her exams and graduated early from the academy. Her first assignment: track down the elusive Day, the Republic's most-wanted criminal, the boy responsible for killing June's brother, the only family she had left. Day, in contrast, failed all his exams and has been living on the streets ever since, smuggling his gambling winnings to his brother, the only member of Day's family who knows he's still alive. June wants to avenge her brother's death; Day wants to buy the cure to the plague that's ripping through his family's neighborhood. June is about to find out exactly what the Republic government is capable of--and that's something Day has known all along.

    Residents without power came to the library to use the Internet, check their email, and get warm. Many commented to staff that they appreciated having the library to come to.  We are pleased to be able to provide this service in time of need.

    Don't let the bulk of this book intimidate you; 660 Curries is an excellent introduction to Indian cooking! Raghavan Iyer's book gives plenty of advice on using and finding foreign ingredients and provides a simple approach to meal prep.  If you're looking for great, one-dish meals, this is a book to try.  Try the Yogurt-Tart Chickpeas on page 335 or the One-Pot Potatoes with Red Lentils on page 552.

    The library purchases a movie license annually that provides permission to show feature length films to an audience. Thanks to the Friends of the Library funding for the new audio video system, a movie theater like atmosphere adds to your viewing enjoyment. On October 28, at 10 am, preschoolers and their caregivers are invited to enjoy Winnie the Pooh, the latest movie about the lovable bear and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. The adult audience can watch Water for Elephants on Tuesday November 1, with show time starting at 6:45 pm. This movie is based on the bestselling book by Sara Gruen. The entire family can come on Friday November 4, at 7 pm for a showing of Cars 2. Please note that the library closes at 5 pm  for normal business on Fridays. Doors open for the movie at 6:45pm and will be closed by 7:05 pm. So zoom over to the library on time to watch Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater when they head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. Please register for these movie events.

    Welcome to our new web site! I hope you like the new look and that you will find it user friendly. The website is built on Drupal, an open source content management system. This software provides features, such as, RSS feeds that patrons can subscribe to for news and event updates. Patrons can also comment on to blog posts and events. I am looking forward to keeping in touch with you via this Director's blog and encourage you to give me your feedback on the library via this post.  I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge Curtis Wyant, our Technology Librarian, for all his work on the development of this web site.

    Teen Read Week has come and gone for another year, but that doesn't mean there's no reason to pick up a great book. If you need some suggestions, or if Brandy came to your class and you forgot the titles she talked about, take a look at the high school list or the middle school list. And if you want more suggestions, take a look at the rest of our suggested teen reading lists.
