It's Murder and Sweets!

Next Wednesday, May 21 at 2 pm the Just Desserts Mystery Book Club will be meeting here at Maud Marks.  We will be discussing The Girl is Murder by Kathryn Haines.  Iris Anderson is only 15 and wants to help her dad with his detective agency. (sound familiar Veronica Mars fans?) This is the first in the series so you don't want to miss out.  Add to the fun by bringing your favorite dessert to eat while we discuss whether the villains got their "just desserts!" 

Be Your Own Boss

April Showers Bring May Flowers

It’s that time of year again when the flowers are blooming and the weather is warming up. Great reason to come to the library to get information on gardening.

And don’t forget the Green Thumb Master Gardening Series this month is on Saturday, May 17 at 10 am. They will be discussing Insects in Your Garden. Register soon before it's "crawling with" people.
