"You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and you feel a little as if you have lost a friend.

-Paul Sweeney

All Books are due back in the library by Friday, May 20th. The library will be closing for the year on that day. If lost or damaged, please contact me and I will let you know the price of the book so I can clear your account. Thanks!
