"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see."

August Selection

The Art of Racing in the RainThe Art of Racing in the Rain
by Garth Stein

Discussion: August 14, 2014 at 1:30pm
Argenta Library


Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul. Through his master Denny, an up-and-coming race car driver, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through. A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope.

That's right! We're going to have another e-reader program! If you recently found yourself with a Kindle, an iPad, a smartphone, or a Nook, and you're wondering what to do with it, we can help!

Together, we'll muddle through the basics of using the device and we'll show you how to take advantage of our online services to read e-books, audiobooks, and magazines on your e-reader.

We would appreciate it if you would sign up beforehand and let us know which kind of device you're bringing. Come in or call us to sign up!
