Book Club: Book of the Month for October 2016

Whisky Beach by Nora Roberts

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts weaves together passion and obsession, humor and heart, in a novel of two people opening themselves up to the truth—and to each other.

For more than three hundred years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore—and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, it’s home.

A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigations after being accused of—but never arrested for—the murder of his soon-to-be ex-wife.

He finds sanctuary at Bluff House, even though his beloved grandmother is in Boston recuperating from a nasty fall. Abra Walsh is always there, though. Whiskey Beach’s resident housekeeper, yoga instructor, jewelry maker and massage therapist, Abra is a woman of many talents—including helping Eli take control of his life and clear his name. But as they become entangled in each other, they find themselves caught in a net that stretches back for centuries—one that has ensnared a man intent on reaping the rewards of destroying Eli Landon once and for all.

Book Club meets in Augusta on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9:00am. If you are interested in Book Club, or reading the “Book of the Month” stop by one of our libraries in Augusta, Bowen, Golden, Littleton, or Plymouth for more information, call us at 217-392-2211, or e-mail at

Vroom Brain Building Moments

New science tells us that our children’s first five years are when they develop the foundation for all future learning. Every time we connect with them, it’s not just their eyes that light up-it’s their brains. In these moments, half a million neurons fire at once, taking in everything we say and do. We can’t see it happening, but it’s all there at all at work. That’s why Vroom is here.

Vroom turns shared moments into brain BUILDING  moments. Whether it’s mealtime, bath time, or anytime in between, there are always ways to nurture our children’s minds. There are so many ways YOU can be a brain builder.

Daily Vroom, is a free app for Apple , android, and Amazon devices. So download it today, and turn everyday moments into BRAIN BUILDING moments!
