Lions donate funds for large-print books


Our large collection of large-print materials also includes:

Rosa Garner, a young widow, and her mother-in-law owe back taxes on their Texas ranch and they have three months to pay in “Sixty Acres and a Bride,” a novel by Regina Jennings. Several people offer to help them out, but with strings attached. Just one person seems honorable in his offer. Can she trust him?


David and Nonie Ellis are on trial after allowing their son to die from cancer which could have been treated with more than prayer. Reverend Westlund and his followers are camped outside the DA’s office in protest. The reverend is trying to create a diversion from a larger fraud case in Robert Tanenbaum’s novel “Bad Faith.”

Police recover the body of a young woman one summer night in Lars Kepler’s novel “The Nightmare.” Forensics believe she was drowned since her lungs are filled with water. But she is on a boat that’s still in the water and there is no water in the boat or around her. The next day, a man is found hanging from a lamp hook in his apartment. Joona Linna realizes these cases are connected and it puts her in danger as she tries to solve the puzzle.

Library Hours: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; closed Sunday.
