   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

Curious Minds
~Evanovich, Janet
 Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he`s also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he`d probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment- babysitting Emerson Knight.
 What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.

Damaged
~Scottoline, Lisa
 Ten-year-old Patrick O`Brien is a natural target at school. Shy, dyslexic, and small for his age, he tries to hide his first-grade reading level from everyone: from his classmates, from the grandfather who cares for him, and from the teachers who are supposed to help him. But the real trouble begins when Patrick is accused of attacking a school aide. The aide promptly quits and sues the boy, his family, and the school district. Patrick`s grandfather turns to the law firm of Rosato & DiNunzio for help and Mary DiNunzio is on the case. Soon Mary becomes Patrick`s true champion and his only hope for security and justice. But there is more to the story than meets the eye and Patrick might be more troubled than he seems. With twists at every turn and secrets about the family coming to light, Mary DiNunzio might have found the case that can make her a true protector, or break her heart...

Rise the Dark
~Koryta, Michael
 Rise the dark. These were the last words written in Lauren Novak`s notebook before she was murdered in a strange Florida village. They`ve never meant anything to the police or to her husband, investigator Markus Novak. Now the man he believes killed her is out of prison, and draws Markus to the place he`s avoided for so long: the lonely road where his wife was shot to death beneath the cypress trees and Spanish moss in a town called Cassadaga.
 In Red Lodge, Montana, a senseless act of vandalism shuts the lights off in the town where Sabrina Baldwin is still trying to adjust to a new home and mourning the loss of her brother, who was a high voltage linesman just like her husband, Jay. As the spring`s final snowstorm calls Jay deeper into the mountains, chasing the destruction on the electrical grid, Sabrina is abducted by Garland Webb, the man Markus Novak believes killed his wife. Drawing them all together is a messianic villain who understands that you can never outpace your past. You can only rise against the future.

The Woman in Cabin 10
~Ware, Ruth
 In this tightly wound story, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. At first, Lo`s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo`s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong…

Sting
~Brown, Sandra
 When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something definitely sparks. Shaw gives off a dangerous vibe that makes men wary and inspires women to sit up and take notice. None feel that undercurrent more strongly than savvy businesswoman Jordie, who doesn`t belong in a seedy dive on the banks of a bayou. But here she is . . . and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her.
 As Shaw and his partner take aim, Jordie is certain her time has come. But Shaw has other plans and abducts Jordie, hoping to get his hands on the $30 million her brother has stolen and, presumably, hidden. However, Shaw is not the only one looking for the fortune. Her brother`s ruthless boss and the FBI are after it as well. Now on the run from the feds and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits-and each other-to stay alive.
 Miles away from civilization and surrounded by swampland, the two play each other against their common enemies. Jordie`s only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but it soon becomes clear to Shaw that Jordie isn`t entirely trustworthy, either. Was she in on her brother`s scam, or is she an innocent pawn in a deadly vendetta? And just how valuable is her life to Shaw, her remorseless and manipulative captor? Burning for answers-and for each other-this unlikely pair ultimately make a desperate move that could be their last.

First Star I See Tonight
~Phillips, Susan Elizabeth
 Piper Dove is a woman with a dream—to become the best detective in the city of Chicago. First job? Trail former Chicago Stars quarterback, Cooper Graham. Problem? Graham`s spotted her, and he`s not happy.
 Which is why a good detective needs to think on her feet. `The fact is...I’m your stalker. Not full-out barmy. Just...mildly unhinged.`
 Piper soon finds herself working for Graham himself, although not as the bodyguard he refuses to admit he so desperately needs. Instead, he`s hired her to keep an eye on the employees at his exclusive new nightclub. But Coop`s life might be in danger, and Piper`s determined to protect him, whether he wants it or not. (Hint: Not!) If only she weren`t also dealing with a bevy of Middle Eastern princesses, a Pakistani servant girl yearning for freedom, a teenager who just wants to fit in, and an elderly neighbor demanding Piper find her very dead husband.
 And then there`s Cooper Graham himself, a legendary sports hero who always gets what he wants—even if what he wants is a feisty detective hell bent on proving she`s as tough as he is.
 From the bustling streets of Chicago to a windswept lighthouse on Lake Superior to the glistening waters of Biscayne Bay, two people who can`t stand to lose will test themselves and each other to discover what matters most.

The Wish
~Lewis, Beverly
 Leona Speicher got the  `sister` she`d always dreamed of the day Gloria Gingerich and her family moved to Lancaster County Amish farmland. The Arkansas newcomers seem to be everything a devout Plain family should be, and Leona can`t help comparing Gloria`s engaging young parents to her own.
Leona`s cousin shows a romantic interest in Gloria around the same time as Gloria`s older brother expresses his fondness for Leona--it seems likely the two young women will marry into each other`s families, remaining close friends for life. Thus, Leona is shocked when the Gingeriches suddenly pack up and disappear after being expelled from the church for reasons no one will discuss. Despite Leona`s pleas, Gloria goes with them, leaving more than one broken heart behind.
 When Gloria unexpectedly contacts Leona after a silence of several years, Leona makes up her mind to persuade her friend to return to Lancaster County and the Amish ways. Leona`s new beau, the deacon`s son, is alarmed when Leona decides to go after Gloria. Will Leona`s dearest wish lead to her own undoing?

The Wolves

Now it`s time for him to pay, and Wells has made it his personal mission. There are plenty of crosscurrents at work, though.

 As Rick starts to pull apart the old house, he makes an electrifying discovery — millions of dollars hidden in the walls. It`s enough money to completely transform Rick`s life — and everything he thought he knew about his father. Yet the more of his father`s hidden past that Rick brings to light, the more dangerous his present becomes. Soon, he finds himself on the run from deadly enemies desperate to keep the past buried, and only solving the mystery of his father — a man who has been unable to communicate, comprehend, or care for himself for almost 20 years — will save Rick... if he can survive long enough to do it.

Crowned and Dangerous
~Bowen, Rhys
 With Darcy driving me out of London in a borrowed motor car, I soon discover that he isn`t planning to introduce me to the pleasures of sinning in secret—as I had hoped—but to make me his wife!
 Of course, there are some quibbles to be dealt with, such as my needing special permission from the King to marry a Roman Catholic and the question of where we might live after the honeymoon. Though he will inherit a title, Darcy is as broke as I am. Even his family`s Irish castle has been sold to a rich American who now employes Darcy`s father as a hired hand.
 Throwing these cares to the wind, nothing could deter us from our mission—except perhaps the news that my future father-in-law has just been arrested. It seems the rich American was murdered and Darcy`s father had more than enough motive to do the deed. With the elopement postponed, we head for Ireland where he insists he`s innocent, and it`s up to us to prove it—for better or worse.

The Swarm
~Card, Orson Scott
 The first invasion of Earth was beaten back by a coalition of corporate and international military forces, and the Chinese army. China has been devastated by the Formic`s initial efforts to eradicate Earth life forms and prepare the ground for their own settlement. The Scouring of China struck fear into the other nations of the planet; that fear blossomed into drastic action when scientists determined that the single ship that wreaked such damage was merely a scout ship.
 There is a mothership out beyond the Solar System`s Kuiper Belt, and it`s heading into the system, unstoppable by any weapons that Earth can muster.
 Earth has been reorganized for defense. There is now a Hegemon, a planetary official responsible for keeping all the formerly warring nations in line. There`s a Polemarch, responsible for organizing all the military forces of the planet into the new International Fleet. But there is an enemy within, an enemy as old as human warfare: ambition and politics. Greed and self-interest. Will Bingwen, Mazer Rackam, Victor Delgado and Lem Juke be able to divert those very human enemies in time to create a weapon that can effectively defend humanity in the inexorable Second Formic War?
