Fellow Patron Requesting Help

We have a patron with special needs who is requesting a series of book titles which we only have in paperback, they need audio books.

 The patron would love to read James Patterson’s series of, “The Women’s Murder Club.”  They would like to start with the first title of the series, but any will do.

 If you have any to donate, please bring them to the Bell Memorial Library and have the staff place them on Stephen’s desk.

 Thank You!!!

Andrew Luck Book Club

Please join us in exploring the books in the Andrew Luck Book Club.

We are happy to announce that we now will be participating in the Andrew Luck Book Club.

The mission of the Andrew Luck Book Club is to share some of the books He’s enjoyed, and to build a continually-growing community of readers of all levels .The idea was initially planted during an interview in February 2015 with NBC Sports Network’s Men in Blazers who started in on him about his love of reading. Then, several months later, Kevin Clark from The Wall Street Journal wrote an article about him being the “NFL’s unofficial librarian”, someone would post something using the hashtag #ALBookClub. They knew they were on to something fun. Every month, He introduces a book for the “Rookies” (younger folks) that he loved as a kid, as well as a book for the “Veterans” (more seasoned readers). The goal for 2017 is to launch a book each month for “Rookies” and “Veterans.”

You will find these books on a special table in the main library. Here is a list to get you started.

How Many Can you read??? Be the first to check them all of the list at our Library an get your picture on the website. Happy Reading!!!!!!!
