Exciting news for local residents and people passing through our wonderful community. Our old catalogue computer recently stopped working and we were given the fantastic opportunity to change to a computer that will allow internet access, printing, and still allow access to the catalogue through our website. This computer does require users to log-in using their library barcodes (out of town guests may ask staff for a temporary pass.) This new computer will be available for 15 minute sessions, and the previous Internet terminal has been changed to 60 minute sessions. Please speak with staff if you have any questions or comments about this exciting new development!
Join us on the following dates for some special LEGO programs. Kids need to bring a parent/guardian/responsible adult with them to this program and be prepared to have a lot of fun! All LEGO building pieces will be provided so please leave your own at home. Space is limited so please be sure to let staff know if you are interesting in coming.
Saturday April 25th 1-2:30pm: the theme is "Oceans and Seas" and one of our wonderful on-call staff members, Carola, will be here for this program so it promises to be an exciting time (she loves LEGO and is super excited to meet all the LEGOmaniacs here in Falkland!)
...keep checking for more dates! Don't forget to speak with staff about our Kids Programming email list!

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty.
The most recent title: The husband's secret by Liane Moriarty was a bit of a surprise for many readers. When you glance at the cover art you see a lovely dried pink rose that is mid- explosion...which frankly evokes thoughts of this story having a large romantic bent. It does have a bit of that, but it instead focuses on the mysterious circumstances of the death of a young woman many years before and the secrets people have been keeping from each other since that time. The storyline follows several families and slowly teases out the truth of what happened. The characters are well developed and will make you ponder what you might have done had you been in their shoes...all-in-all an enjoyable read!
