NEW FICTION - Come in and browse the fiction titles. I just re-read The Girl With the Pearl Earring (2000) and saw the story in a completely new light. Use these pics to preview some of the titles the library has purchased in November.
I read some great reviews of the NEW title ~ The Last Time We Said Goodbye!
Ms. Williams just enjoyed reading SEE ME. The title was only in the library for 24 hours when she snatched it up! She has declared it a Good Read for Sparks fans everywhere.
Excerpt from Good Reads: "Rich in emotion and fueled with suspense, SEE ME reminds us that love is sometimes forged in the crises that threaten to shatter us . . . and that those who see us for who we truly are may not always be the ones easiest to recognize."

Do you highlight special phrases which "speak" to you? Looking forward to some pics - send today! Check out this Guardian article.
