One of our prospective board members (thanks, Patricia!) sent me some information to share - this really interesting Library Calculator, that shows the monetary value of your library use, and also news about an author talk:
First Baptist Church of Decatur
One of our board members (hi, Aileen!) is giving out rave book reviews as well: she loved The Round House by Louise Erdrich (available through the library's floating collection), which won the National Book Award last night (and was also named Amazon's Book of the Year this week), and In the Shadow of the Banyan Tree by Vaddy Ratney (available at Ocee), a "fictionalized memoir of Khmer Rouge and the fall of Cambodia through the eyes of a child in the royal family driven from life of privilege into the chaos of the takeover by communists". There are currently waiting lists for both of these titles, but they sound like they'll be worth it.
