JUST ARRIVED  In the past few weeks we’ve added new novels by Stuart Woods, Thomas Perry, Danielle Steel, W. E. B. Griffin, Paulo Coelho, and Jayne Ann Krentz.  The library also has all of your New Year’s Resolution needs.  If you’re trying to get your financial and legal affairs in order, check out our new collection of Nolo law books (they’re on the table to the left of the public access computer,) or the new works Mind Over Money for some tips.   We also have your artistic endeavors covered with too many new books to list.  Stop in or check out website to see our latest guides to drawing, painting, knitting, quilting, crocheting, sewing and creating costumes, weaving, preserving foods, jewelry-making, gardening, woodworking, and more.  We even have a new book on how to sell your art online.  For that ever-persistent promise to “get fit,” check out both our display of diet and exercise books including Zero Sugar Diet and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn’s new book Strong is the New Beautiful.  Finally, if you’re planning a road trip this year and want to make it educational, check out 50 Great American Places to inject some history into your experiences.  (Even if you aren’t physically going anywhere, you’ll probably learn something new about our national landmarks.)
