    As we celebrate our 125th Anniversary, I would like to thank all of our patrons and community partners for their generosity in donating to the library as part of our special year. I would like to extend a special thanks to Alan and Ellen Marzelli, who produced a special Words & Music Concert Series show, An Evening with Kenny White. The sold-out concert was a night to remember and the perfect way to celebrate our 125th.

    October 2 A Midsummer’s Equation by Keigo Higashino

    Manabu Yukawa, the brilliant physicist, goes to the dying Japanese resort town of Hari Cove where a former homicide detective dies from

    carbon monoxide poisoning.

    November 6 Skeleton God by Eliot Pattison In Eliot Pattison’s Skeleton God, Shan Tao Yun, now the reluctant constable of a remote Tibetan town, has learned to expect the impossible at the roof of the world, but nothing has prepared him for his discovery when he investigates a report that a nun has been savagely assaulted by ghosts. In an ancient tomb by the old nun lies a gilded saint buried centuries earlier, flanked by the remains of a Chinese soldier killed fifty years before and an American man murdered only hours earlier. Shan is thrust into a maelstrom of intrigue and contradiction.
