"In the dark colony of night, when I consider man's magnificent capacity for malice, madness, folly, envy, rage, and destructiveness, and I wonder whether we shall not end up as breakfast for newts and polyps, I seem to hear the muffled cries of all the words in all the books with covers closed."

—Leo C. Rosten

Fall Book Sale- Argenta Library

Monday, September 28, 9-5
Tuesday, September 29, 12-7
Wednesday, September 30, 9-5

 

After the success of our Spring Book Sale at Oreana, the library will be having a Fall Book Sale in Argenta on September 28-30. 

If you have books, CDs, or DVDs at home that you no longer want (but are still in good condition), you can bring them to the library and we'll either keep them for our collection or put them in our sale!

There will be no prices at the sale, but we will be accepting free will donations. All proceeds from the sale will be used to buy new items for the library.

 

 

Book Discussion
September Selection

The MartianThe Martian
by Andy Weir

Discussion: Thursday, September 10, 2015 at 1:30pm
Argenta Library

Description:

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?
