August Books 'n Brews Title: 08/21/2016

On Thursday, August 25th at 7:00pm at the Tap Room, located between Rooster's and Rick's Jewelry just off Main Street, will be the next meeting of the Books 'n Brews Book Club. The featured book for this meeting is one of the more popular fiction novels of the last several years, "The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins. Hawkins’ best-selling debut tells the story of Rachel and how she got dragged into a mystery involving a couple she saw every day on her train commute.

The library has access to three copies for patrons to checkout: a regular print, large print, audio CD, and a downloadable audio edition through our Overdrive app. The 2 print editions and CD can be checked out for up to 10 days with no renewals. If you already have read, own, or plan on purchasing the book, you are welcome to join us too.
