Nancy's Notes - February 3, 2011

Computer classes to be offered, “Nightshade” and "Digitalis" by Ronie Kendig, "Tandem" by Tracy Bateman.

We would like to try offering some beginning computer classes for the public. Becky and I will be your instructors, so I guess that means it will really be basic! Our first session will be held Wednesday February 9 at 11:00 a.m. It will last one hour. This session will teach you how to send and receive e-mail and how to set up an e-mail account. The second session on February 16 will help you learn how to surf the web. We will show you how to use the library’s web site and how to use our card catalog. The Final session will be held on February 23. It will teach participants how to use our on-line services. These include BYKI (learn a new language), Ancestry.com (genealogy), and NEIBORS (downloading audio books). We ask that you pre-register at 532-3673. The classes will be limited to eight participants. You may take any one or all three of these sessions.

We have a new series for those who like to read from selections in our inspirational fiction. It is the Discarded Heroes series. Book one, “Nightshade”, features Max Jacobs. The former Navy Seal finds himself alienated from those he loves as he struggles with war-related PTSD. His wife files for both a divorce and a restraining order  leaving Max devastated. Then a man appears saying he’s organizing a group, called Nightshade, that recycles veterans. Max hopes the group will help him find a purpose in life once again. 

The second book in the series is, “Digitalis”. This book also involves the black ops group Nightshade. In this story Colton Neeley leaves his military career to take care of his four-year-old daughter. The repercussions of his former life are still evident. He hopes to join the group and step out of his isolation and begin a new life with a new woman. When an attack is made on the woman’s life, Nightshade steps in.

Even our inspirational fiction has added many murder mysteries to their line-up. Tracy Bateman’s “Tandem”, begins in a small town where six months ago brutal murders shook the town. They reportedly stopped after a house fire supposedly claimed the killer’s life. Lauryn McBride’s family auction house has taken the responsibility for the estate sale of one of the victims, Markus Chisom. Lauren enjoys the job that gives her a reprieve from watching her Alzheimer riddled father. She soon finds centuries-old secrets are tied to the estate and that someone will do anything to make sure they stay hidden.

Come in and see us: Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 p.m. or 10:00 – 5:00 Thursday through Saturday.
