   I Love My Library
  • I need the library for research using the periodicals to the Internet.-Xavier, 14
  • I love the Children’s Programs, especially the American Girl Tea Party and The Polar Express-Addison. Age 9
  • As a Military family, the library is the first place I visit to gather information on the town’s contacts and locations for everything from daycare to dentists. The GAPL has welcomed our family that first day and we have never stopped coming to the library. What a great place to be!-Jane Coburn, Former Board Member
  • No matter how busy our life gets, we always find time for the library-Meredith, Felicity, Ainsley and Emory Anderson

  • Libraries do so much more now in many different ways. As a family of four generations of library users, we are able to: check out books, movies, audio tapes; download e-books – free of charge; do research on the computers, and enjoy a wide range of programs for all ages.-The Kiser Family: Doris, Fred, Jodi, Sean

  • I love my library because books are an adventure waiting to happen. Reading can take you to new heights and test all of your emotions in just one chapter. Anything is possible when you read.-Betsy Fischer Book Club Member

Eligible
~Sittenfeld, Curtis
 This version of the Bennet family—and Mr. Darcy—is one that you have and haven`t met before: Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help—and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray.
 Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master`s degree and barely leaves her room, except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won`t discuss. And Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane`s fortieth birthday fast approaches.
 Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome new-in-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show Eligible. At a Fourth of July barbecue, Chip takes an immediate interest in Jane, but Chip`s friend neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy reveals himself to Liz to be much less charming. . . .
  And yet, first impressions can be deceiving.

A Man Called Ove
~Backman, Frederik
 Meet Ove. He`s a curmudgeon, the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him the bitter neighbor from hell, but must Ove be bitter just because he doesn`t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?
 Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove`s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents` association to their very foundations.

As they rehearse together, however, Casey finds herself attracted to Tate—he`s much more down-to-earth than she expected and any physical contact between the two of them literally gives her a tingling, electric shock. As opening night draws near, Casey has some difficult decisions to make. Whom should she believe? The seemingly sincere, slighted Devlin or Tate, whose rough, arrogant exterior may only be skin deep.

He`s distraught and doesn`t understand why his blended family is falling apart. After a year, the police still have no answers- Ivy could have jumped, could have been pushed, or it could have been an accident. With too many suspects and not enough evidence, the investigation has grown cold.
 Tommy thinks that if someone can figure out what happened to his step-sister, everything will go back to normal, so he writes to investigative reporter Maxine Revere. This isn`t the type of case Max normally takes on, but the heartbreak and simple honesty in Tommy`s letter pulls her in. She travels to Corte Madera, California, with her assistant David Kane and is at first pleased that the police are cooperative. But the more Max learns about Tommy and his dysfunctional family, the more she thinks she`s taken on an impossible task- this may be the one case she can`t solve.
 If Ivy was murdered, it was exceptionally well-planned and that kind of killer could be hiding in plain sight ... planning the next act of violence. Max believes the truth is always better than lies, that the truth is the only thing that matters to gain justice for victims and their families. But for the first time, she wonders if this time, the truth will kill.
