Nancy's Notes - March 21, 2013

“Touch & Go” by Lisa Gardener, “Game of Thrones” by George R.R. Martin.

The library was closed last Monday after the big snow. We were unable to keep up with the weather and there was no way to get snow removal done during the day. Hopefully that’s the last measurable snow we receive this year, however in bad weather don’t hesitate to call and see of we are open before you go out in the cold.
We recently added about a dozen audio books to our collection. Check-out of our audio materials has increased dramatically over the past few years. There has been a large increase in commuters and people traveling who request audios to pass the time while driving. Our newest selections includes: Touch and Go, The Fifth Assassin, Killing Lincoln, The Last Runaway, Insane City, Twelve Tribes of Hattie, Admission, Gone Girl, The Time Keeper, NYPD Reed, Stay Close, Half Stitched Amish Quilting Club, Low Pressure, Guilt, The Power Trip, Game of Thrones, Fifty Shades of Grey, and The Black Box.
Many of the audios listed above can also be found in our regular fiction collection. Lisa Gardener’s “Touch & Go” is one of those stories. Returning home after a date night meant to repair their marriage, Justin and Libby Denbe are abducted along with their teenage daughter from their glamorous Boston townhouse, leaving cops with no motive or ransom demand.
Another story available in both formats is, “Game of Thrones”. The story is also a series on HBO. This work of fantasy is about a time long ago when a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as unyielding as the land where they were born. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of plenty, this is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.
Stop in soon and see what’s new: Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 p.m. or Thursday through Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
