   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

The Fallen
~Baldacci, David
 Amos Decker and his journalist friend Alex Jamison are visiting the home of Alex`s sister in Barronville, a small town in western Pennsylvania that has been hit hard economically. When Decker is out on the rear deck of the house talking with Alex`s niece, a precocious eight-year-old, he notices flickering lights and then a spark of flame in the window of the house across the way. When he goes to investigate he finds two dead bodies inside and it`s not clear how either man died. But this is only the tip of the iceberg. There`s something going on in Barronville that might be the canary in the coal mine for the rest of the country.
 Faced with a stonewalling local police force, and roadblocks put up by unseen forces, Decker and Jamison must pull out all the stops to solve the case. And even Decker`s infallible memory may not be enough to save them.

Noir
~Moore, Christopher
 It`s not every afternoon that an enigmatic, comely blonde named Stilton (like the cheese) walks into the scruffy gin joint where Sammy `Two Toes` Tiffin tends bar. It`s love at first sight, but before Sammy can make his move, an Air Force general named Remy arrives with some urgent business. `Cause when you need something done, Sammy is the guy to go to- he`s got the connections on the street.
 Meanwhile, a suspicious flying object has been spotted up the Pacific coast in Washington State near Mount Rainer, followed by a mysterious plane crash in a distant patch of desert in New Mexico that goes by the name Roswell. But the real weirdness is happening on the streets of the City by the Bay.
 When one of Sammy`s schemes goes south and the Cheese mysteriously vanishes, Sammy is forced to contend with his own dark secrets—and more than a few strange goings on—if he wants to find his girl.

~Palmer, Michael
 President Geoffrey Hilliard and his family live in the ever-present glare of the political limelight, with relentless scrutiny of their daily lives. The White House is not an easy place to grow up, so when the President`s son Cam, a sixteen-year-old chess champion, experiences extreme fatigue, moodiness, and an uncharacteristic violent outburst, doctors are quick to dismiss his troubles as teen angst. But Secret Service agent Karen Ray, whose job is to guard the president`s family with her life, is convinced Cam`s issues are serious – serious enough to summon her physician ex-husband for a second opinion.
 Dr. Lee Blackwood`s concerns are dismissed by the president`s team – until Cam gets sicker. Lee must make a diagnosis from a puzzling array of symptoms he`s never seen before. His only clue is a patient named Susie Banks, a young musical prodigy who seems to be suffering from the same baffling condition as Cam. Hospitalized after an attempt on her life by a determined killer, Susie`s jeopardy escalates as Cam`s condition takes on a terrifying new dimension.
 Is someone trying to murder the President`s son?

Head on
~Scalzi, John
 Hilketa is a frenetic and violent pastime where players attack each other with swords and hammers. The main goal of the game- obtain your opponent`s head and carry it through the goalposts. With flesh and bone bodies, a sport like this would be impossible. But all the players are `threeps,` robot-like bodies controlled by people with Haden`s Syndrome, so anything goes. No one gets hurt, but the brutality is real and the crowds love it.
 Until a star athlete drops dead on the playing field.
 Is it an accident or murder? FBI Agents and Haden-related crime investigators, Chris Shane and Leslie Vann, are called in to uncover the truth―and in doing so travel to the darker side of the fast-growing sport of Hilketa, where fortunes are made or lost, and where players and owners do whatever it takes to win, on and off the field.

The Flight attendant
~Bohjalian, Chris
 Cassandra Bowden is no stranger to hungover mornings. She`s a binge drinker, her job with the airline making it easy to find adventure, and the occasional blackouts seem to be inevitable. She lives with them, and the accompanying self-loathing. When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room, she tries to piece the previous night back together, already counting the minutes until she has to catch her crew shuttle to the airport. She quietly slides out of bed, careful not to aggravate her already pounding head, and looks at the man she spent the night with. She sees his dark hair. His utter stillness. And blood, a slick, still wet pool on the crisp white sheets. Afraid to call the police--she`s a single woman alone in a hotel room far from home--Cassie begins to lie. She lies as she joins the other flight attendants and pilots in the van. She lies on the way to Paris as she works the first class cabin. She lies to the FBI agents in New York who meet her at the gate. Soon it`s too late to come clean-or face the truth about what really happened back in Dubai. Could she have killed him? If not, who did?

I`ll be gone in the dark
~McNamara, Michelle
 At the time of the crimes, the Golden State Killer was between the ages of eighteen and thirty, Caucasian, and athletic—capable of vaulting tall fences. He always wore a mask. After choosing a victim—he favored suburban couples—he often entered their home when no one was there, studying family pictures, mastering the layout. He attacked while they slept, using a flashlight to awaken and blind them. Though they could not recognize him, his victims recalled his voice- a guttural whisper through clenched teeth, abrupt and threatening.
 For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area.
