   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

Fade to black
~Rosenfelt, David
 After getting shot in the line of duty, New Jersey state police officer Doug Brock has been busy rebuilding his life. He`s reunited with his fiance and started to get some of his memories back. He hopes he can continue to recover with the help of an amnesia support group and that the damage from his past isn`t permanent.
 It isn`t until fellow group member Sean Conner approaches him after a meeting that Doug realizes the trouble is just beginning. Sean has discovered in his attic what can only be called a scrapbook of a murder victim, but he has no recollection of the girl`s identity or why he might have gathered this information. Doug agrees to help and convinces his captain to open what had been a cold case. When he discovers that he had a personal connection to this case, suddenly he`s questioning everything he thought he knew about the case, about Sean, and about his own past.

The Rising Sea
~Cussler, Clive
 An alarming rise in the world`s sea levels--much larger than could be accounted for by glacier melt--sends Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA scientific team rocketing around the globe in search of answers. What they find at the bottom of the East China Sea, however, is even worse than they imagined- a diabolical plan to upset the Pacific balance of power--and in the process displace as many as a billion people.
 A rare alloy unlike anything else on earth, a pair of five-hundred-year-old Japanese talismans, an assassin so violent even the Yakuza has disowned him, an audacious technological breakthrough that will become a very personal nightmare for Kurt Austin - from the shark-filled waters of Asia to the high-tech streets of Tokyo to a forbidden secret island, the NUMA team must risk everything to head off the coming catastrophe.

Caribbean Rim

 His old pal Carl Fitzpatrick has been chasing sunken wrecks most of his life, but now he`s run afoul of the Florida Division of Historical Resources. Its director, Clive Nickelby, despises amateur archaeologists, which is bad enough, but now he and his young `assistant` have disappeared--along with Fitzpatrick`s impounded cache of rare Spanish coins and the list of uncharted wreck sites Fitz spent decades putting together. Some of Fitz`s own explorations have been a little...dicey, so he can`t go to the authorities. Doc is his only hope.
 But greed makes people do terrible things- rob, cheat, even kill. With stakes this high, there`s no way the thieves will go quietly--and Doc`s just put himself in their crosshairs.

The Woman left behind
~Howard, Linda
 Jina Modell works in Communications for a paramilitary organization, and she really likes it. She likes the money, she likes the coolness factor—and it was very cool, even for Washington, DC. She liked being able to kick terrorist butts without ever leaving the climate-controlled comfort of the control room.
 But when Jina displays a really high aptitude for spatial awareness and action, she`s reassigned to work as an on-site drone operator in the field with one of the GO-teams, an elite paramilitary unit. The only problem is she isn`t particularly athletic, to put it mildly, and in order to be fit for the field, she has to learn how to run and swim for miles, jump out of a plane, shoot a gun...or else be out of a job.
 Team leader Levi, call sign Ace, doesn`t have much confidence in Jina—who he dubbed Babe as soon as he heard her raspy, sexy voice—making it through the rigors of training. The last thing he needs is some tech geek holding them back from completing a dangerous, covert operation. In the following months, however, no one is more surprised than he when Babe, who hates to sweat, begins to thrive in her new environment, displaying a grit and courage that wins her the admiration of her hardened, battle-worn teammates. What`s even more surprising is that the usually very disciplined GO-team leader can`t stop thinking about kissing her smart, stubborn mouth…or the building chemistry and tension between them.
 Meanwhile, a powerful Congresswoman is working behind the scenes to destroy the GO-teams, and a trap is set to ambush Levi`s squad in Syria. While the rest of the operatives set off on their mission, Jina remains at the base to control the surveillance drone, when the base is suddenly attacked with explosives. Thought dead by her comrades, Jina escapes to the desert where, brutally tested beyond measure, she has to figure out how to stay undetected by the enemy and make it to her crew in time before they`re exfiltrated out of the country.
 But Levi never leaves a soldier behind, especially the brave woman he`s fallen for. He`s bringing back the woman they left behind, dead or alive.

A Call to vengeance
~Weber, David
 After the disastrous attack on the Manticoran home system by forces unknown, the Royal Manticoran Navy stands on the brink of collapse. A shadowy enemy with the resources to hurl warships across hundreds of light years seeks to conquer the Star Kingdom for reasons unknown, while forces from within Manticore`s own government seek to discredit and weaken the Navy for reasons very much known- their own political gain.
 It`s up to officers like Travis Long and Lisa Donnelly to defend the Star Kingdom and the Royal Manticoran Navy from these threats, but the challenge is greater than any they have faced before. Weakened but not defeated, the mercenary forces and their mysterious employer could return at any time, and the anti-Navy faction within Parliament is growing. The situation becomes even more dire when fresh tragedy strikes the Star Kingdom.
 While the House of Winton faces their enemies at home, Travis, Lisa, and the other officers of the Royal Manticoran Navy must reunite with old friends and join new allies to hunt down and eliminate the forces arrayed against them in a galaxy-spanning conspiracy.

The Third victim
~Margolin, Phillip

 A woman stumbles onto a dark road in rural Oregon--tortured, battered, and bound. She tells a horrific story about being kidnapped, then tortured, until she finally managed to escape. She was the lucky one--two other women, with similar burns and bruises, were found dead.

 The surviving victim identifies the house where she was held captive and the owner, Alex Mason--a prominent local attorney--is arrested. Although he loudly insists upon his innocence, his wife`s statements about his sexual sadism and the physical evidence found at the scene, his summer home, is damning.

 Regina Barrister is a legendary criminal defense attorney, known as `The Sorceress` for her courtroom victories. But she`s got a secret, one that threatens her skill, her reputation, and, most of all, her clients. And she`s agreed to take on the seemingly impossible task of defending Alex Mason.

 Robin Lockwood, a young lawyer and former MMA fighter, has just left a clerkship at the Oregon Supreme Court to work for Regina Barrister. The Alex Mason trial is her first big one, a likely death penalty case, and she`s second chair to Regina. Increasingly, she`s worried her boss`s behavior and the details in the case against their client don`t quite add up.
