This week’s new titles include a second novel by local author Danny Stone. We are excited to be able to offer Danny’s newest work to our readers. Call or stop by to reserve. Also on the shelf are numerous new thrillers including the work of Michael Connelly and Ann Rice. In non fiction there are several books about how the digital age is effecting jobs, love, and business as well as biographies of Martin Luther King, Bob Hope,  Betty Halbreich, Leon Panetta and the unforgettable Jerry Lee Lewis.

Did you know that at the Wead Library we process new books for our patrons every week? They even have their own home and next time you come into the library we will let you in on where all the new arrivals are kept. They are rotated out into the general population  in our stacks after inhabiting our New Arrivals shelves for about three months. It’s a constant rotation, with new literature to enjoy weekly.
