Book of the Week is 
Need to Know 
by Karen Cleveland

This Week's Book of the Week is 'Need to Know' by Karen Cleveland. A CIA analyst tracks Russian sleeper agents in the USA and finds them in the most unlikely and most disruptive places. She is a patriot, a wife, and a mother, but all of these parts of her are challenged in this action-heavy thriller. Karen Cleveland used to be a CIA analyst herself, and her experience comes through. While not exactly groundbreaking, this is a great read for those who like stories about patriots, or who like to imagine worst-case scenarios

Viral Links of the Week
February 13, 2018
OK, it's here. The holiday people either planned for and love, or the one that they half-hearted ask 'ehh, want to do something?' As whole swaths of people learn each year, Valentine's Day is what you make it to be, so think hard about what your loved ones want! At the very least stop by to grab a romantic comedy.

Tomorrow is also early release for the schools, so bring the K-4th graders by at 1:30pm to make friendship bracelets and bring the teens by at 12:30pm to make personalized clay Valentine's crafts!
