The Clay County Public Library will be closed this week on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday this week for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will reopen on Monday, November 30.

 

Did you know that for every tax dollar that comes to the library, we provide $21.69 worth of services?  Last year, 76,442 items were checked out of the library, and the computers were used 9,030 times.  The library is a wonderful community service, available to everyone.

 

The library will begin Spanish classes on Wednesday, January 6.  Anyone interested in learning to speak Spanish, or improve their skills, there will be free classes at 5:00. 

 

There have been several new books in the library this week.  New fiction titles include “Pirate Latitudes” by Michael Crichton, “The House at Riverton” by Kate Morton, “Lakeside Christmas” by Susan Wiggs, and “Life’s a Beach” by Claire Cook.  

 

New nonfiction titles include “The Official Red Book of United States Coins, 2010 edition” by R. S. Yeoman, “Last Lion:  The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy” by Peter Canellos, and “Going Rogue” by Sarah Palin.  

For our teen readers we have “Deadly Little Secret” and “Deadly Little Lies” by Laurie Faria Stolarz, “fire” by Kristin Cashore, “The Van Alen Legacy” by Melissa De La Cruz, and “Devil’s Kiss” by Sarwat Chadda.  

 

New on DVD this week is “Aliens in the Attic”, “Ice Age:  Dawn of the Dinosaurs”, “The Scrat Pack”, and “Angels and Demons”.  Come in and check us out!
