Barbara Bush closed April 20th

Good Morning everyone! I hope you are all staying safe and dry this week. As many of you know, we've been closed the past couple days due to high water in the area. While we think the library itself is okay, surrounding areas (ie parking lots/streets) are still under water and we have no way of getting into the building. We will be closed again today and I just wanted to pass some info along to all of our customers. I am sure our being closed is a major inconvenience to a lot of our customers and hopefully we will be back to normal soon. 

Here are some things to know while the Barbara Bush Library is closed: 

The Tuesday evening book club will discuss Heroes Are My Weakness by Susan Elizabeth Phillips on May 10th @ 7:00pm

Persons who love to read and discuss what they have read join in informal conversation. Everyone is welcome. May's selection will be : Heroes are my weakness by Susan Elizabeth Phillips 

Summary


New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips is back with a delightful novel filled with her sassy wit and dazzling charm. He's a reclusive writer whose imagination creates chilling horror novels. She's a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids' puppet shows. He knows a dozen ways to kill his characters with his bare hands. She knows a dozen ways to kill an audience with laughs. But she's not laughing now.
