Nancy's Notes - October 1, 2009

Open House, “Roadside Crosses” by Jeffrey Deaver, "Swimsuit" by James Patterson.

Oh my goodness, did we have a great turn-out for our grand opening. The community room was set up with around 130 chairs and it was standing room only. There was a short program followed by our ribbon cutting. Tours were held throughout the day. There were approximately 150 people in attendance for the ceremony. We gave tours to around 200 students during the afternoon and community members turned out in droves. The staff was busy until closing at 8:00p.m. My guesstimate is there were probably at least 600 people celebrating with us that day. We were thrilled. If you haven’t had a chance to take a look make sure you stop. Our hours remain the same: Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

            I am so proud of myself; I found my folder with the list of new books. It was packed and moved personally so I would know where to find it. That only works if you can remember where you put it. Eventually I did come up with my folder, so here we go!

            Jeffrey Deaver fans will enjoy “Roadside Crosses”. It takes place in the Monterey Peninsula which is rocked when a killer begins to leave roadside crosses beside local highways. They are left not in memoriam, but as announcements of his intention to kill. He uses personal information the victims have posted on the web to kill them in a most gruesome manner.

            James Patterson will scare his readers with “Swimsuit”. A beautiful supermodel disappears from a swimsuit photo shoot at a glamorous hotel in Hawaii. Only hours after Kim McDaniels goes missing, her parents receive a terrifying phone call. Fearing the worst, they board the first flight to Maui to begin the hunt for their daughter. Ex-cop Ben Hawkins gets the McDaniels assignment. The ineptitude of the local police defies belief-Ben has to start his own investigation. All the while, a killer sets the stage for his next production. His audience expects the best and they won’t be disappointed.

            Stop in and look over our new facility you will be pleasantly surprised.
